The Columbia River Arts & Cultural Foundation (CRACF) started as a grass-roots volunteer committee, and is now a 501©3 non-profit board of directors and comprised of residents of Southwest Washington. These hard-working volunteers are diligently focused on developing a plan to build a state-of-the-art performing arts & cultural center located within the Parker's Landing development (partnering with the Port of Camas-Washougal & RKm development) in Washougal, Washington.

Southwest Washington is rich in cultural heritage and is full of artists across all genres. Imagine a center with a view of the Columbia River, Mt. Hood, and it sits in this brand-new waterfront development! Think of the possibilities of having a facility that can host live performances, bringing educational opportunities to local students, offering practice stages for youth & adult performers/artists, bringing the community together to learn about the cultural heritage of our area and cultures from around the world!
This will become a destination focal point for the enhancement of art, culture, and economic opportunity in our communities of Clark & Skamania counties. It will draw performers and attendees both regionally as well as from around the world!
We are in the beginning stages of our project and are looking for community members and art supporters who are willing to help us fund our feasibility study, and our critical business planning stages. We need to do this right!
The feasibility study will provide us with data that will show us, the developers, the Port of Camas-Washougal, and our community that it can be (and should be) done. It will provide us with the insight to determine the optimal size of the main auditorium/theater, other amenities that should be included (podcast studios, practice stages, classroom/learning space utilization, etc.), and whether the community will support it. This has to be done and we need your help & support.
We need you all; local citizens, friends/family, teachers, artists, business people, and industry leaders who are willing to step up and help us bring this center to life. Is that you? Are you someone who wants to be involved in growing something that brings us all together, heals our hearts, and makes all of our lives extraordinarily amazing? Then please donate to our cause.
Be safe and stay healthy!
