Providence International Arts Festival

FirstWorks and the city of Providence bring the world of art and music to the Ocean State


Providence proudly calls itself the Creative Capitol. Our artists are edgy, groudbreaking and a vital part of our local culture, and now we're taking that to an international scale. From June 11-14, FirstWorks and the City of Providence will welcome artists from around the world for a celebration of sight and sound.
