Mayor Angel Taveras and the Department of Art, Culture and Tourism will present the 6th Annual Senator Claiborne Pell Lecture on Arts and Humanities.

The 2014 event, A Culture of Possibility for Providence, will feature Arlene Goldbard, activist and author of books including "The Culture of Possibility: Art, Artists & the Future" (2013) and "New Creative Community: The Art of Cultural Development" (2006). During the Pell Lecture, Ms. Goldbard will imagine the possibilities for Providence in 20 years if its citizens understand how art and culture are essential to a sustainable future, and if art's transformative powers are woven into every aspect of public and private life. Her talk will include interludes with Providence artists Holly Ewald (visual arts), Sokeo Ros (dance/choreography), and Erik Ehn (playwriting/directing) telling their own stories of past inspiration and future vision, culminating in a conversation with audience members.

The 6th Annual Senator Claiborne Pell Lecture on Arts & Humanities is presented by the City of Providence in partnership with Community MusicWorks, Providence Youth Arts Collaborative, The Providence Athenaeum, with support from the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage, and The Rhode Island Foundation.

The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are required due to limited seating.
