arts around the fire

Newport’s Arts and Cultural Alliance’s monthly networking event, Arts Around the Fire, continues at Salvation Café on Wednesday, November 13th from 6-8pm at the Post & Beam room at 140 Broadway in Newport.  The Alliance’s guest will be Janaya Kizzie, Rhode Island Arts and Culture Research Fellow. The fellowship’s purpose is to deepen public appreciation for the contributions of artists, writers, performers, and cultural leaders connected to Rhode Island by composing and connecting Wikipedia articles.  Come hear what she has discovered about RI’s cultural landscape.

Arts Around the Fire is an opportunity for artists, writers, performers and audiences to engage with colleagues about events affecting the cultural community and learn about new ideas and good work being done.  Arts Around the Fire features a cash bar, complimentary hors d’oeuvres donated by Salvation Café and an informal atmosphere where artists and art lovers can connect.  The Alliance thanks Salvation Café for their hospitality.  

The next Arts Around the Fire will be on January 15th, with Todd Trebour of the RI State Council on the Arts.
