An ideal candidate should be:

  • A self-starter capable of producing work independently with sometimes minimal supervision

AS220 is a community of artists in downtown Providence providing opportunities and open forums for Rhode Island artists. An alternative to institutional venues, we have gained national attention for our commitment to an “open and unjuried” egalitarian approach to creative community. The activities of AS220 include weekly events in our performance space, monthly gallery exhibits, as well as events such as Foo Fest, AS220’s annual arts and music festival. AS220 is also home to the AS220 Youth Studios and the AS220 Industries, made up of our Printshop, Fab Lab, and Media Arts. The newest addition to AS220 is 95 Empire, a performance collective comprised of a black box theater, theater arts school, dance facilities, and a group of resident performers. AS220 currently owns and manages three buildings in downtown Providence which provide work and live/work space for approximately 50 artists, commercial tenants, as well as space for our galleries, venues, bar, and restaurant. The FY2016 operating budget of AS220 and related for profit entities is $3.8 million.
