Support AS220 Live Arts!

Our Live Arts program (our Main Stage, Black Box Theatre, Psychic Readings, and Dance Studio) has seen over 250 performances and 200 classes cancelled since shutting down in March due to COVID-19, losing over $78,000 in revenue – of which over $55,000 would have gone back to artists and instructors. This is not counting $240,000 of income lost AS220 Food & Drink, much of which subsidizes affordable access to our Live Arts programming. Venues like ours will be among the last places to reopen – this income loss will be ongoing.

We need your help to continue providing Live Arts programming during the pandemic. Your support will help ensure that AS220 has the staff, resources, and equipment necessary to offer artists access to live streaming and recording services, rehearsal spaces, and for classes to resume at the Dance Studio. Help us ensure the survival of AS220’s Live Arts program and Rhode Island’s unjuried, uncensored, and all ages forum for the arts!
