Study recommends better business-education-public coordination to accelerate state’s efforts in digital-media production, entrepreneurship; Goal to attain national prominence by 2020. 

Developed in collaboration with Gary Glassman of Providence Pictures and Renee Hobbs of URI’s Harrington School of Communication and Media, Digital City Rhode Island brings together (1) a co-work space designed to help digital media entrepreneurs build their businesses in Providence, (2) a membership organization to support networking and collaboration, and (3) an education initiative that advances digital skills for all Rhode Islanders.

Create.

Our space, DC206, is the heart of Digital City. Located in downtown Providence, we provide access to state of the art technology, dedicated work space and a vibrant community of creative freelancers, artists and small businesses. Come to an event, schedule a visit, or apply to be a member. Learn more about how you can rent co-work space in our facility beginning February 2014.

Gather. 

We host monthly meetings and regular workshops and presentations for digital media practitioners. These events catalyze collaboration, provide a space for networking, and promote the sharing of ideas and resources.

Learn.

Alongside our educational partners, we are supporting schools and programs across Rhode Island to provide comprehensive and up-to-date education in digital media. In early 2014 we will publish a white paper outlining the entire eco-system of digital media education in Rhode Island with emphasis on untapped synergies and gaps in professional development.
