Providence Children’s Museum Creativity Initiative Call For Installations

The Providence Children’s Museum is currently seeking artists for spring installations. See here for their CaFE application site.

The Creativity Initiative is Providence Children’s Museum’s groundbreaking three-year project that seeks to connect all children to Rhode Island’s creative community. The Initiative includes a series of rotating exhibits developed in collaboration with local creatives and provides opportunities for families to engage with immersive environments. New exhibits will open each season.

A series of hands-on workshops, complementing the theme of each exhibit, will give little innovators a chance to peek behind the curtain of real-world creative thinking and explore, ask questions, and find their own answers in the Museum’s new, hands-on
Innovation Lab and Maker Studio. Children and their grownups will use authentic tools and materials, while trained Museum staff ensure a rich problem-solving experience. Professional creatives will also drop in for demonstrations and how-to sessions. Throughout the Museum, interesting creative artifacts, on loan from regional artists, designers, and arts organizations, will be on display, giving children an up-close look at
the step-by-step creative process.

The Creativity Initiative is funded in part by generous support from the Norman and Rosalie Fain Family Foundation, the Murray Family Charitable Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Carol A. Peterson Foundation, the Carter Family Charitable Trust, the Providence Journal Charitable Legacy Fund, the Hassenfeld Family Foundation, the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, and the Rhode Island State
Council for the Arts.
