New Urban Arts builds strong relationships that have kept our community growing since 1997. The commitment of individuals—students, mentors, staff, board members, and alumni—allows us to remain vital within the unique arts/education/cultural landscape of Providence.

From 2008 to 2014, New Urban Arts selected a recent alumnus to serve as the chairperson of STAB, the Studio Team Advisory Board. These days, STAB only includes current students, but you can meet our past chairs here.
