Congratulations to Karen Barbosa – new Executive Director of Riverzedge Arts

karenCongratulations and best wishes to Karen Barbosa on her appointment as the new Executive Director of Riverzedge Arts in Woonsocket.

Barbosa, who assumed the position on July 10, first joined Riverzedge as director of the expanded learning opportunities program. She most recently held the position of education and youth development director.

According to her bio on the Riverzedge website, “Karen Barbosa is a self-described “teacher-nerd”; she’s been in education for over a decade and can’t get enough. Her learning journey has taken her from Colorado, to Vermont, to Boston, Massachusetts, and now Rhode Island. She is a passionate supporter of experiential education and is excited to see Woonsocket serving as a model for innovative hands-on learning programming in the state and nation.”

Congratulations, Karen. We look forward to continuing our work with you.
