We love to create opportunities for our artists to take leadership roles in the community in sharing their expertise in the arts.

Do you need an on-site woodworking teacher, or are you looking for an artist to give a presentation on their work? Contact Community Inclusion Coordinator Livia Charman at livia.charman@rhd.org
