WaterFire is a Millennial

Millennials who grew up in RI don’t remember life without WaterFire. Millennials new to Providence have most likely never lived in a city with a world-class art experience, for the community, free of charge. As a New Flame member, you are supporting the creative placemaking unique to your city and becoming a part of a thriving arts community.

About The New Flame Social Hour

The New Flame Social Hour aims to bring millennial community members together at the WFAC for an evening of networking, cocktails, and Q and A with prominent leaders in the community. Each event is centered around a theme falling in the categories of business, science, technology, law, and politics with a local representative from each area. A short, half-hour Q and A will be led by the Wheeler School eighth-graders of the Cityside program.

About The Pass the Torch Exhibition and Artist Talk

The Pass the Torch Exhibition and Artist Talk pairs two Rhode Island artists for a month-long exhibition and opening reception with a moderated discussion. The work of an emerging Providence artist is exhibited while a film about the established NetWorksRI artist is screened during the reception. A moderated discussion between the artists and Q and A with the audience will follow.
