We’re SO EXCITED to announce that the AS220 Industries is back open to the public! In-person workshops have returned and we are accepting new members to join our community and use our amazing resources! Please note that masks are required in our Industries spaces regardless of vaccination status.
If you are interested in becoming a member, please drop by during our public hours and we can provide a new member application as well as a tour of our facilities. Our public hours are Thursdays from 4pm – 8pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 10am – 6pm. We are located at AS220’s Mercantile Block building at 131 Washington Street in downtown Providence. We look forward to meeting you!
The AS220 Industries is a community makerspace made up of a print shop, media arts studio, fabrication lab, and darkroom. We offer affordable public workshops on a wide variety of processes and tools in the areas of printmaking, digital and film photography, videography, digital and traditional fabrication, podcasting, and more! Our resources are made available, at affordable rates, to anyone wanting to create their own work.
Workshop scholarships are available for folks with financial need – click here for more information.
Our community of Industries members has designed and planned this public reopening — with support from AS220 staff — since the beginning of 2021 in an intentional process that centered the feedback and guidance of members, the health and safety of users, and in a way that strives to ensure the Industries program aligns with AS220’s Racial Justice Initiative and BIPoC demands.
We would not have been able to reopen without out the hard work and dedication of our Director of Programs Anjel Newmann; our Education Manager Sara Inacio; our Membership Manager Madison Emond; our Shop Lead members Jacques Bidon, Carol Sweeney, Larry Zagorsky, Sarina Mitchel, and Jon Winkelman; and the many others members who attended countless meetings and designed and tested safe reopening protocols.
See you at the Industries! What will you make?
