At ¡CityArts!, we believe that making art is an act of care, love, and respect through which young artists express their ideas, learn about the world, and celebrate their place in it. We are fighting to nurture self-knowledge and community building, now more than ever.
After serious consideration about how to best serve our community in an effective and meaningful way, we are temporarily shifting the majority of winter and spring activities into Providence middle schools (such as Roger Williams, Nathan Bishop, and more) and fewer classes at our Broad Street location. Partner organizations (such as PASA) will manage recruitment, family communications, and drop-off and pick-up management for the time being.
In order to make this transition as smooth and effective – and as short-lived – as possible, we need your support. As we have been there for our students and families during the most challenging times, we now need your help to survive and thrive. Arts organizations and small businesses have been hit hardest by the pandemic. As the cost of living increases, we are currently unable to meet the costs necessary to continue running our programs. Yet, we still have the drive and desire to continue with our national award-winning educational programs. Please consider donating to ¡CityArts! today. Your contribution, no matter how great or small, will be deeply impactful to our community of instructors and students. This transition we are making is a critical step, and your donation is imperative to the future of the organization.
With deepest Respect and Gratitude,
The ¡CityArts! Board of Directors
