New Urban Arts is the kind of place that can make anyone smile and say, "This is great- we need more!" However, New Urban Arts is such a great find because we could definitely use more places like it. The studio space is homey and open to visitors of all walks of life. The students who work there are all focused on whatever creative project is at hand. There is a strong sense of unity and equality. Who knew such a small space could bare such great fruits of the arts and of human endeavors in creativity? The mentors and volunteers are full of patience, positive hands-on attitudes, acceptance and understanding, making the environment ideal for young learners and blossoming artists in the community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It is clear that this space is important to the students and staff who are a part of it and to the community of which the non-profit is a part of.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Down-to-earth, engaging people with valuable talents and experiences that they are more than willing to share with the students they mentor.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get an even bigger space for even more students and activities, never run out of or have a limit of supplies, provide lunches for the students, set up payrolls, go on fieldtrips to creative capitols around the country- maybe even the world!

What an amazing place of energy and tolerance and exploration! I lived in the building just next door and would always pop in on my way to/from the neighborhood coffee shop to see "what was up". It was always something new and innovative. The kids were always engaged, the mentors constantly amazed and the rest of us in awe of the power of art. thanx for being part of the 'hood and the community!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the impact it has on the community and the immediate neighborhood

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world! Their use of various art-forms and immersion of highly invovled mentors makes for an incredibly strong positive experience for everyone involved -- even if you just walk by and look in the windows.

Having moved to Providence some six years ago, I have observed several non-profits in our community that have made a lasting imprint on our City--New Urban Arts is among them. As a safe place for young people to explore their own creativity and have positive interactions with their peers while building their confidence, NUA has made an incredible contribution to our quality of place while strengthening Providence's reputation as an arts and cultural powerhouse. Thanks NUA students, mentors, staff and volunteers!!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it is a model program for youth, arts, confidence-building, and unleashing creativity!
