Conversations on Creative Practice Kicks Off!

Tomorrow inaugurates this years Conversations on Creative Practice Series. Stop by New Urban Arts from 6-8pm for some snacks and a chat with Arley-Rose Torsone- Artistic Director of Design Providence.

Arley-Rose Torsone wants to make the world a better place through graphic design. Although her pieces may not be Nobel Peace Prize Winners themselves, however, she believes that her graphics are small steps towards a greater good. With a firm belief that "A wise person makes more opportunities than they find," she is thoroughly invested in her work at AS220 as the in-house graphic designer and manager of the Design Providence Cottage Industry, where she also teaches design classes to the amazing young people of Broad Street Studio. Since her graduation from Parsons the New School for Design and moving to Providence in 2004, she has dedicated her professional career to designing for causes which have socially-responsible roots and sustainable practices. She believes that "good design is not just about profit or beauty, but creating social value" (Patrick Butler).

A.R.T. is also very lucky to work amongst - and therefore be inspired by - other innovative Cottage Industries at AS220, such as the Community Printshop, Labs and Darkroom, while receiving the guidance and support from AS220's All-Star Admins! Since her introduction to letterpress and silkscreen, she takes every opportunity she can to output her work in "the good ol' fashioned way." Waste, toxins, and choice of materials are all factors when she gives birth to a piece and considers the environmental impact that her pieces generate. (She always enjoys seeing posters around town printed on old AS220 calendars). She also loves hanging out with hot air balloonists, typographers, special collections librarians and offset printers who are total curmudgeons.

*New Urban Arts Series: Conversations on Creative Practice is made possible through generous support of The Rhode Island Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. This event is organized by New Urban Arts Mentoring Fellows, Andrew Oesch and Peter Hocking. For more information, visit www.newurbanarts.org.
