WaterFire Providence began by transforming the three rivers in downtown Providence with over 80 bonfires, many local artists and food vendors, and thousands of visitors. Thanks to the commitment of countless volunteers, WaterFire Providence has been able to grow and strengthen over the years. Recently, WaterFire has committed to transforming place and building community at the WaterFire Arts Center in the underserved Olneyville/Valley neighborhoods.
WaterFire Providence volunteers are an integral part of all events, performances, and exhibitions we host. They are at the heart of WaterFire’s work. Volunteers build, perform, inspire, engage, and enjoy! Because of volunteers, downtown Providence and the Olneyville/Valley neighborhoods are able to transform completely. We bring art to the community, built by the community. We create world-class art experiences throughout the year, and we want your help. Whatever your skillset, we have an opportunity for you!
WaterFire volunteers come from all walks of life, and we appreciate the diversity, talents, skills, and creativity that are represented. Over the last 25+ years, a close-knit network of volunteers has been established. We are delighted at the community that they have become and hope to continue growing the WaterFire Providence volunteer family.
