RISCA Diversity Statement

RISCA embraces a proactive approach to diversity as essential to our role as a state agency and as a promoter and supporter of the arts in Rhode Island.  In building and serving diverse audiences, RISCA affirms and supports the diversity of persons and ideas both within the organization and throughout the state.

RISCA will continue to make every effort, in collaboration with the Governor’s Office, toward building an increasingly more diverse Council that is reflective of the communities we serve.  We commit to engaging and understanding the challenges that our constituents face as they strive for greater inclusion and diversity in their projects and programs.

RISCA values and promotes diversity in the arts and seeks to build on its collaboration with organizations and community groups in developing, supporting, and providing programs that both celebrate and serve diverse populations, groups, cultures, and geographic areas into the state.
