Why I give:



“AS220 empowers everyone to authentically create, experience, and react without boundaries. Our commitment to open discourse and supporting artists and makers is pivotal in Providence’s artistic growth. Personally, AS220 affords me community, discovery, experience, inspiration, challenge, and joy. AS220 has an extraordinary impact on our city, our young people, our community, and our creative spirits. Any donation, small or large, makes a huge difference to our ability to continue our mission. Please join me in supporting AS220 today.” – Natalie Hogan, Program Manager, Games Development at Hasbro, Inc; maker; and AS220 Board Chair



“AS220 provides a community that has helped me live and operate as an artist in the world at large. I’d much rather pay rent to a nonprofit organization that provides a community for artists to grow and express themselves than most alternatives, but AS220 is more than just a place to live and work. The experiences had here are capitally unquantifiable, so I throw the organization a few extra clams when I can while shouting, ‘Utopia or Oblivion!’” – Joe DeGeorge, AS220 resident and musician


Our programs also need supplies to help them achieve their goals! We’d happily accept the following in-kind donations:

AS220 Youth:

  • Non-perishable snack food and bottled water for snack time
  • Paint and paint brushes
  • Computer paper

Media Arts:

  • Black and white 35mm film
  • Audio visual equipment such as microphones and tripods cables
  • Photo inkjet paper
