Project Open Door


Interim Director: Lauren Allen

Project Open Door (POD) is a college access initiative for urban youth housed in the Rhode Island School of Design's (RISD's) Department of Teaching + Learning in Art + Design (TLAD). It draws creative teens attending public and charter high schools in Rhode Island's urban core cities of Central Falls, Pawtucket, Providence, and Woonsocket to participate in free out-of-school time art and design programming.
