Our vision is Travelers Rest as a premier "small town" for the arts, entertainment, and culture in the Southeastern United States! Since its inception in 2013, the Travelers Rest Artists Alliance (TRAA) has been committed to supporting community creativity and engagement by advancing the arts, entertainment and culture to enrich quality of life, education, and economic development in the region. Through ongoing events and programs aimed at mentoring emerging artists, supporting the business and promotional needs of individual artists, arts education, and public art/community outreach projects we will continue to foster community and economic growth opportunities in our area.

Of course, we want you all to be TRAA Members. So, please join us! Just click here: JOIN
