CreativeGround Office Hours at RISCA

NEFA is excited to have Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) host our CreativeGround team in Providence, RI on May 30th! Members of our staff will facilitate office hour sessions to provide guidance on updating user profiles on CreativeGround to meet roster profile minimum requirements.
What is CreativeGround? CreativeGround is NEFA’s regional online directory of artists, cultural nonprofits, and creative businesses. Among many other dynamic features and functions, CreativeGround allows artists to display their designation as a vetted member of various New England State Arts Agency rosters. For example, Rhode Island’s Education Roster* can be found here.
Our May 30th office hours are specifically for Teaching Artists on RISCA’s Rhode Island Education Roster. Teaching artists on the roster can sign up for a timeslot by clicking the button below:

Call For Proposals

The Providence Preservation Society invites artists to propose new works related to PPS’s Most Endangered Properties of 2018. The Most Endangered Properties program engages the public in thinking about the future of significant historic buildings, landscapes, structures, and neighborhoods. With “Sites and Stories,” we aim to expand this engagement through the work of committed Rhode Island-based artists, involving the community in the re-building of narratives around the human beings who inhabited these important properties.  Artists and artist teams will have the opportunity to engage with scholars, historic preservationists and communities, interpreting endangered sites, drawing out hidden histories, and provoking essential public conversations.
To read the full Call to Artists and Summary Narratives of selected Most Endangered Properties, please click here to access the Dropbox. The Call to Artists is also attached to this email.
Proposals are due by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 15, 2018. Open to Rhode Island artists only.
