Feria del Libro y Las Artes de Providence (Feria) returns on Saturday, October 1 at Providence Career and Technical Academy (PCTA). The popular Arts and Literary Festival, now in its third year, takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Writers, visual artists, musicians, and dancers will gather at a one-day event for discussions, readings, book sales, and performances of Latino arts and culture. This year, Feria, an annual event founded by Providence Community Library, has merged with Feria Artisanal (the yearly Latin American Artisans’ Fair organized in collaboration with AS220) and features arts and crafts available for purchase. Feria has partnered also with the Providence Latin American Film Festival to offer a movie as part of the program. Feria will take place 9:30am-7:00pm. at PCTA, 41 Fricker Street, Providence. Entry is free.
Mirror with a Memory is an exhibit of works by the artists and craftsmen who have taken back the chemical and physical qualities of the photographic medium. Photography as a medium has always been driven by the needs of the consumer, pushing companies to change to the medium to make their products faster, cheaper, and easier. These changes were rarely dictated by the wants or demands of the artist, but for monetary concerns. Since the rise of digital imaging, there has been a push back from a new generation of photographers that seek a tangible object; something that can be held, touched, and treasured.
FabNewport's New Season is Here!
First, thank you for a great summer. We had nine wonderful weeks of summer programming: six weeks of Skunk Works; a week each of 3D Printer Camp and Wearables for Girls. We wrapped up the summer with three days of professional development with Newport Public School teachers, thanks to funding from the Rhode Island Foundation.
The Maker Party and Screening of Most Likely to Succeed was a hit. More than 200 people turned out for fun, food, and film. And we got great coverage in The Newport Daily News the next day.

There are times in our lives when we feel stagnant, unmotivated, or plain Blah! And these feelings don’t always help those of us who really want to be feeling energized and in the highest vibration possible for ourselves, for those who mean the most in our lives, and for those we want to impact with our gifts. As women entrepreneurs, the greatest disservice is not honoring our creative selves. Oh yes, we all are creative individuals in one way or another. With that said, I want to share with you four types of movements that can help you tap into the part of you that is right there waiting to come out; that creative part of you that wants to shine and be seen and sometimes heard!
The premise of these Movements is based on my belief that we are Physical, Mindful, Spiritual, and Emotional beings. These are the components in each and every one of us. To live a more balanced and full life, being in tune and in touch with each of these four areas of our beings is essential.
