riverrun (the first word of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake) is a tax exempt educational organization that provides arts and cultural programs to the Buffalo and Western New York community. Its purpose is to enhance the education of the community through its programs. riverrun was created in 1995 to partner with the State University of New York at Buffalo and the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library in programs involving the writers James Joyce and Mark Twain. Since that time it has grown, to provide a wide array of arts and cultural programming, with many partners, and to establish student research fellowships (see more in the archives) 

riverrun continues to place special emphasis on partnerships with educational organizations in Western New York, to bring the resources of those organizations to a wider public. riverrun has collaborated in many programs with WNY libraries, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield-Penney Arts Center, the State University of NY at Buffalo, Buffalo State College, Canisius College, and D’Youville College, among others. It has brought speakers and performers from around the world to Buffalo, including from Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Peru, England, Mexico, France, Croatia, Russia, and from throughout the United States and Canada. riverrun is happy to be part of the strong tradition, and the dynamic present, of the arts in Buffalo, New York.
