The 2010 Conference is supported in part by grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, The Rhode Island Foundation, and Bank Rhode Island.

Words cannot express how much I grew as an artist and administrator at the Alliance conference. I was exposed to so much in so little time and had so much fun in the process, all in the name of sustaining artists and their contribution to our culture.
