AS220 is a non-profit community arts organization located in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. We are an unjuried, uncensored forum for the arts: a space to access tools, technology, and knowledge; a space to come together, collaborate, innovate, experiment, and take risks. AS220 envisions a just world where all people can realize their full creative potential.
AS220 offers artists opportunities to live, work, exhibit and perform in our facilities, including four rotating gallery spaces, a performance stage, a black box theater, a print shop, a darkroom and media arts lab, a fabrication and electronics lab, a dance studio, a youth program focusing on youth under state care and in the Rhode Island juvenile detention facility, 47 affordable live/work studios for artists, and a bar and restaurant.
AS220 cultivates a creative community that continues to have a profoundly transformative impact on the city of Providence. We are dedicated to supporting artists and enhancing cultural opportunities for all the people of Rhode Island.
