Interested in participating in XIX: Shall Not Be Denied ?

We welcome you! This project would not be possible without the active participation of cultural and historic institutions, schools, neighborhood and service organizations, residents, artists, designers, students, performers, curators, storytellers from all around Rhode Island. 

Please take a moment to read over the Core Values section on the website. If you have a program or exhibition taking place in 2020 that aligns with the XIX: Shall Not Be Denied value statements, we’d love to have you join us. We hope you will use the logo and social media tags provided to reflect your participation in this state-wide initiative. 

How to become a partner

  • STEP 2: Once we’ve approved your Partner Agreement Form, we’ll send you the Social Distance Program Info Form Ver.II along with the identity packet and style guide. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and gradual re-opening, we’ve created this Social Distance Program Info Form Ver.II for in person/virtual/hybrid events/programs in the next couple of months. This is the ONLY program info form for STEP 2 now. We will use the information to populate the online Events page, to list you/your organization on our website, and to connect with you via our Instagram @xixshallnotbedenied. *This section was last updated on 07/31/2020.
