For 25 years our mission has stayed the same: ensuring Providence youth have equal access to performing and visual arts programs, unhindered by socio-economic barriers. Since 1992, ¡CityArts! has offered free in-school, after-school, and summer arts education to thousands of the city’s youth, ages 8 - 14. We believe an arts education is central to youth empowerment, community building, and social change.
¡CityArts! alumni and former executive director accepted the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award in 2014 from First Lady Michelle Obama.
