Our Special City

While the year might be winding down, this Providence program is still going strong


As 2019 inches closer to the end, Year of the City: The Providence Project is beginning to wrap up. For the last ten months, the city-wide collaborative project has catalyzed more than 40 exhibitions, conferences, walking tours, performances, and readings across the city, from Washington Park to Wanskuck. Together, these programs remind us how special our city is – how rich in heritage, how wonderfully diverse, and how creative. November is no different, and below you’ll find special programs both appearing and premiering this month.
