ArtsCrew is a new workforce development program committed to bringing artistic projects to life. Working together in a community of freelance arts workers, ArtsCrew members receive training and paid employment as they support artistic projects at Brown University, and throughout Providence and Rhode Island. This program invites area students, Brown students, along with seasoned and emerging, local and regional arts workers, to serve in a variety of essential jobs, including visitor or artist services, front of house, stage management, technical production, marketing, and PR, teaching artists, curatorial, producing, installation, administration, and programming.

“ This program is a stepping stone, a beacon of possibility that says 'there's a place for you here, a chance to explore and maybe even make a career. ”
