As of Monday, March 16th, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is fully operational but all staff are working remotely. We will follow guidance from the Center for Disease Control and the Rhode Island Department of Health in the coming days and weeks, and will update via social media and email as things change. For now, the best way to reach RISCA staff is by email, our phones are not forwarding to us at home. We are also conducting all meetings by phone or Zoom, contact the staff member you are meeting with for more details.
