Mission Statement

The Steel Yard acts as a catalyst in the creative revitalization of the industrial valley district of Providence, Rhode Island. In fostering the industrial arts and incubating small business, the Corporation seeks to cultivate an environment of experimentation and a community strengthened by creative networks.

Description

The Steel Yard offers arts and technical training programs designed to increase opportunities for cultural and artistic expression, career-oriented training, and small business incubation. Our work is made possible through a combination of program-related earned income, private and government grants, corporate giving and individual philanthropy.

We are located at the historic Providence Steel and Iron site, along the Woonasquatucket River in the heart of Providence's industrial Valley neighborhood. Our 10,000 square foot industrial shop includes:

  • Welding, blacksmithing, jewelry, ceramics, and foundry space
  • Ceramics Cooperative
  • Jewelry Cooperative
  • Studio Access Opportunities
  • Outdoor multi-use work and exhibition space

The Steel Yard's programs cater to working artists, students, community members, tradespeople, arts educators and entrepreneurs.
