Doors Open RI will open the doors to Rhode Island’s famous and forgotten places, whether hidden under our noses or soaring above our heads. By providing new perspectives on our cities we aim to:
1. Connect Communities
Behind every door is a community of people. By opening our doors we can forge new connections between Rhode Island’s diverse populations.
2. Foster Belonging and Local Pride
Welcoming the public inside our great places and spaces and learning their stories, fosters a sense of belonging and pride in where we live.
3. Create Advocates for our Built Environment
When we step inside a place and learn its story, we become more connected to it and to the environment it is a part of. We care more.
4. Inspire new Ambassadors
By experiencing the hidden gems of our cities, Rhode Island residents are transformed into ambassadors for the state, building local tourism and growing our economy.
