Join us for the Alliance of Artists Communities' 2015 annual conference! October 13 - 16 in Providence, Rhode Island.
Join us in one of the country's most artist-centered cities as we explore ways in which we can advance today's artists - and their role in developing healthy, vibrant, engaged communities. The 2015 Conference will bring together arts leaders, funders, policy-makers, board members, educators, and artists from across the globe for three days of performances, trainings, tours, and talks. All are welcome!
The capital city of the smallest state, Providence boasts a quirky mix of world-class artists, lively politics, beautiful architecture, revered restaurants, diverse cultures, and a creative entrepreneurial energy that runs throughout the city.
From the bustling community arts studios of AS220, to the industrial art labs of the Steel Yard, and from the internationally-renowned galleries of the Rhode Island School of Design Museum to the dramatic waterfronts, thriving neighborhoods, and public art initiatives of this energetic urban artscape - discover Providence this fall!
