This event has already happened and was part of Ideas Fest 2021.

As local arts organizations and business reopen, celebrate a cultural moment of transition at “Emergence,” an open-air showcase. Local writers will read stories, essays and poetry on the theme of “emergence” against the backdrop of the iconic Adventure Time mural at 94 Washington Street in Downtown Providence. Commissioned by The Avenue Concept, the mural’s image of a door opening into a new world aligns with the theme of the evening as we honor artist Natalia Rak and the work before it is transitioned later this fall.

This event is hosted by What Cheer Writers Club in partnership with The Avenue Concept and in collaboration with PVDFest. It was made possible by generous funding from the Providence Tourism Council.

Rain date: Aug 6
