Think about it.

Living art connects us with each other, our community, and even ourselves. It has the power to open our minds and lift up our hearts. As Rhode Island’s premier performing arts curator, FirstWorks is proud to share the magic of living art with you.

Since 2004, FirstWorks has been making unforgettable memories for more than 400,000 people who have taken part in our festivals, performances, and programs. As innovators, we deliver “firsts” by:

• Engaging new audiences to share in artistic excellence from around the world

• Providing first art experiences for children in schools all over the state

• Bringing artists and new works to Rhode Island for the first time
