This fall, RISCA is piloting a semester long workforce development program. Modeled as a three credit college course, 9 participants in three arts disciplines (fashion, visual art, and music) will spend the semester learning together. This program will culminate in an art event created from top to bottom by the participants. This program is being developed in partnership with New Urban Arts, AS220, Providence Arts Culture and Tourism, The Steel Yard, and Roger Williams University.
The nine person cohort started their semester on September 2nd. You can read about what they are learning and their reflections on the course, their art, and themselves on the blog created and run by the participants.
