In June, a group of Rhode Island Expansion Arts Program (RIEAP) Alumni and Cohort along with some members of RISCA and the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities (RICH) staff (Elena Calderón Patiño, Mollie Flanagan, Todd Trebour and Logan Hinderliter) attended the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) Creative Communities Exchange (CCX).
The conference gathers people from across New England who connect creative work to community goals. This networking and learning event, allowed participants to share ideas and discuss strategies about how to make inclusive creative communities happen.
This year scholarships were available for RIEAP Cohort and Alumni to attend, some for the first time, in Montpelier, Vermont. Julie Yang from the Hmong United Association of Rhode Island and Smriti Gupta of the India Association of Rhode Island presented at the CCX Conference.
