Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) Awards Grant to Endless Beautiful
Endless Beautiful was awarded a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts to conduct a community workshop in Rhode Island! RISCA is a major contributor to the vibrant art scene that exists in Rhode Island.
Here’s their mission:
Established in 1967, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) is charged by the state legislature to stimulate public interest and participation in the arts and to serve as the liaison to the state arts community. As set forth in the General Laws of Rhode Island, it is the responsibility of the Arts Council to:
- Stimulate the growth of the state’s arts and the public’s participation in them
- Survey and assess the needs of the arts state-wide, and to make recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly
- Provide educational opportunities in the arts
- Actively support and encourage the expansion of the state’s cultural resources
- Promote and protect freedom of artistic expression
We haven’t decided on a location for our workshop yet, but we will release details as soon as that is established. Don’t forget that we have a community workshop sponsored by NeighborWorks BRV coming up in Woonsocket, RI on August 12, 2017 from 4 – 6 pm! Tickets are available here.
