The Teaching Artist Roster is a list of teaching artists and arts organizations who have been reviewed by public panels and selected based on their mastery of an artistic discipline, experience and training to work in educational settings. For more information and/or questions on the Roster, contact RISCA’s Arts in Education Director at Maggie.Anderson@arts.ri.gov.

RISCA’s General Operating Support for Artists (GOS-A) program provides grants of $6,000 for each of three consecutive years (totaling $18,000) for artists to work toward large, specific, self-identified goals in their art practice. This funding is unrestricted, and artists can use the funds to support their goals however they need. RISCA’s Individual Artist Program Director, Mollie Flanagan, has scheduled virtual workshops and office hours throughout May and June, you can also reach her at Mollie.Flanagan@arts.ri.gov.
