    Southside Cultural Center of Rhode Island connects, cultivates and engages community through the arts. We envision a vibrant, connected community engaged in discovering, exploring, and creating art, that nurtures the voices of artists of color and cultivates leaders who lift up our people.

    At SCCRI we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, background, or interest, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and most importantly, express themselves through different mediums of art.

    Today, we are home to the following partner tenant arts organizations- The Cambodian Society of Rhode Island, RI Black Storytellers, RI Latino Arts, the Laotian Community Center, Providence Improv Guild, and a resident theatre company, the Wilbury Theatre Group. Collectively these organizations provide classes in dance, music, storytelling, improvisation, acting, and playwriting, as well as live performances, visual art installations, and live performance events. In addition, several of these organizations also provide social advocacy, cultivate cultural preservation, and support for individual artists.
