NEFA is excited to have Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) host our CreativeGround team in Providence, RI on May 30th! Members of our staff will facilitate office hour sessions to provide guidance on updating user profiles on CreativeGround to meet roster profile minimum requirements.
What is CreativeGround? CreativeGround is NEFA’s regional online directory of artists, cultural nonprofits, and creative businesses. Among many other dynamic features and functions, CreativeGround allows artists to display their designation as a vetted member of various New England State Arts Agency rosters.

Creative Community Fellows brings a group of twenty-five creative change makers across New England together, to be part of something bigger, to learn life-changing skills and to see dreams become reality. Fellows jump-start the program by living and learning together for one week in an incubator-like environment building their skills in strategy, leadership and design thinking. Over the course of five months, they take monthly online courses in topic areas such as community development, finding capital and support, budgeting and more. Together, they share updates on their projects and meet with leaders in the field who serve as mentors. Fellows test, adapt, and build on their work, walking away with clarity and a strategy forward. Applications close April 22, 2018.
Thanks to the generous support of The Barr Foundation, tuition is on us. All tuition, including the cost of lodging, food, local transportation and program fees ($8,000) is completely underwritten.
