Red Salmon Arts is a 501(c)3 grassroots cultural arts organization, with a forty-year history of working with the indigenous neighborhoods of Austin, Texas. 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. 

Red Salmon Arts offers resources to Chicana/o/x/Latina/o/x/ and Native American communities living in working class neighborhoods of Austin to better understand the culture and arts of their families and ancestors and has always stridently supported 2SLGBT+ narratives  and stories as part  and parcel of  our experience. 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/xs.
