Red Salmon Arts

A Native American/Chicana/o/x/Latina/o/x-based cultural arts organization

Mission/Vision: Red Salmon Arts is a 501(c)3 grassroots cultural arts organization, with a thirty-year history of working with the indigenous neighborhoods of Austin. RSA is dedicated to the development of emerging writers and the promotion Chicana/o/x/Latina/o/x/Native American literature, providing outlets and mechanisms for cultural exchange, and sharing in the retrieval of a people’s cultural heritage with a commitment to social justice. 

Programming: Red Salmon Arts was founded in 1997 to offer resources to Latina/o/x and Native American youth living in working class neighborhoods of Austin to better understand the culture and arts of their parents and ancestors. The founder of Red Salmon Arts, raúlrsalinas, was a world- renowned poet who developed his artistic technique through a life of hardship and experience, including time served in prison for non-violent crimes. His readings were dramatic and effective, helping young people who heard him understand the life circumstances of so many Mexican Americans in those days, and how poverty and racism still create challenges for Latina/o/x.
