In July & August of 2024 South Providence residents will come together to enjoy family-friendly arts programming. Three bilingual artists will be offering hands-on art making projects for families, including creating collages, zines making, hand painting, and color-art sketches. RILA's Bachata instructor, Brandon Contreras, will invite everyone — adults and young people — to learn some dance moves. La Noche de Bici, Community Drumming Circles and Teatro en El Verano will be part of our Museo programming all summer. And don't forget about our popular Barrio Tours, scheduled to begin on Sat. May 4, 2024.

About RILA

Rhode Island Latino Arts was founded in 1988 as the Hispanic Heritage Committee and today is Rhode Island’s leading nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to the promotion, advancement, development and cultivation of Latino arts.

We celebrate and promote Latino art & artists through our Rhode Island Latino Artists Network events, and each year we coordinate the sharing of information and activities to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Through strategic partnering with local community organizations, including schools, libraries, museums and senior centers in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of our urban centers – we ensure our mission’s fulfillment:
To raise awareness and preserve Latino arts, heritage and cultures in Rhode Island and to build community pride.
