As a non-profit arts organization, RAIR relies on the support of its community. You can help us continue to grow and spread our mission!
RAIR’s residency program provides artists on-site access to recovered materials and a studio space to produce work. The RAIR workspace includes a large project space, wood shop equipment, metal working facilities, access to the waste stream for materials, and a material storage area. Each artist has attentive support from RAIR’s staff, who act as liaisons between the artist and the recycling facility.
RAIR’s material sourcing program fulfills requests for found objects from artists, individuals and community partners. After being pulled from the waste stream, the materials are taken off site to studios and workspaces all over the region. This program is intended to encourage a broad range of people to think differently about the collection and disposal of materials.
