On Thursday, February 12, 2015 from 5:30-7:00PM, we will host a very exciting networking event that will continue previous discussion and will give artists an opportunity to show us their stuff! The event will take place at Southside Cultural Center, 393 Broad St. in Providence.

This networking event will be open to all Latino artists listed on the RILA Latino Artists roster and new artists who wish to sign up and participate.

Artists: You will have an opportunity to have your portraits taken by a professional photographer, so you should come ready for an informal photo shoot.

The purpose of this next gathering is to continue our discussions proposed in the first gathering held at ¡CityArts! on September 11, 2014.

Goals of the Rhode Island Latino Arts Network:

  • To provide a venue and opportunities for persons to engage in dialogue and exchange ideas with a focus on Latino artists and the arts in Rhode Island.
  • To examine and explore the programming of arts activities that meet the needs of the Latino community.
  • To celebrate and feature individuals, projects and programs with a focus on Latino arts.
  • To generate connections across an expanding network of individuals and groups who embrace the mission and goals of the RI Latino Arts Network and the Hispanic Heritage Committee of RI.

The RI Latino Arts Network does not exist to replicate those arts and cultural organizations that are already fulfilling specific roles and capacities in the Latino community. Rather RILAN is meant to be a supportive group of individuals that provides an opportunity to expand the arts in community settings and help to provide connections that can assist anyone seeking to get involved with the RI Latino community and its cultural arts activities.

Invited guests will include people from many walks of life: artists, arts educators and professors, museum directors and educators, arts council and tourism representatives, gallery owners and community arts activists.
