WHY does TRAHC matter to Texarkana - or to you?

As essential forms of human expression and communication, "the arts" (performing arts, visual arts, media arts, literary arts, design, etc) can educate, inspire, entertain, energize. The arts can connect people and foster understanding. The arts can be instrumental in building economies, especially now when creative capital parallels economic gain; they can produce educational excellence. The arts can attract people to places, and can make a community itself attractive. In short: the arts are all-around wise investments with potential big returns.

TRAHC matters because TRAHC works non-stop to tap the potential of the arts for Texarkana, and for everyone who live here. TRAHC is committed to growing people and community...through the arts.
