Building a Stronger, More Dynamic Arts Community for all of Rhode Island

The arts have a way of illuminating lives… They have been shown to develop a foundation for ingenuity in children, aid the healing process for the sick, and create a wealth of economic opportunity.

 

With the stress of a challenging economic climate and uncertain employment, it is more important than ever to nourish our spirit and find happiness in the small joys of life.

 

As a resident of Rhode Island, whether or not you consider yourself to be a “patron” of the arts, you directly benefit from our thriving arts and cultural community. 

 

The Arts & Business Council of Rhode Island [A&BC/RI] exists to support our state’s rich and vibrant arts industry by helping artists, arts organizations, and businesses come together to create the fusion that defines a creative community.

 

According to a recent study*, the nonprofit arts and culture industry in Providence generates:

¨       Almost $112 million in local economic activity.

¨       2,759 full-time equivalent jobs and $56 Million in household income.

¨       $71 million in event-related spending by audiences.

¨       $11 million in local and state government revenue.

*Americans for the Arts’ 2005 Arts & Economic Prosperity III Study for Providence, RI

 

Since 1989, the programs and services of the A&BC/RI have helped to expand the role of the creative sector’s impact on our economic, new business and tourism development, assuring Rhode Island's economic competitiveness and quality of life.

 

I am writing today because we need your help to ensure that our vibrant, creative community is always a part of life here in Rhode Island.

 

There are lots of ways you can help support this important source of economic growth in our state…

With thanks,

Peter Bramante
Executive Director
