Play Your Way

Creativity Initiative

Creativity in the Community

The Creativity Initiative is Providence Children’s Museum’s groundbreaking three-year project that seeks to connect all children to Rhode Island’s creative community. The Initiative includes a series of rotating exhibits developed in collaboration with local creatives and provides opportunities for families to engage with immersive environments. New exhibits will open each season.

A series of hands-on workshops, complementing the theme of each exhibit, will give little innovators a chance to peek behind the curtain of real-world creative thinking and explore, ask questions, and find their own answers in the Museum’s new, hands-on Innovation Lab and Maker Studio.

Throughout the Museum, interesting creative artifacts, on loan from regional artists, designers, and arts organizations, will be on display, giving children an up-close look at the step-by-step creative process.
