Doors Open Rhode Island connects people to local places of cultural, historical and architectural significance in an effort to bridge communities and inspire new perspectives on our cities. We provide behind-the-scenes access to Rhode Island’s best-kept secrets through innovative programs and tours planned throughout the year, culminating in a free, citywide, open house festival. Through welcoming the public inside the gems at the heart of our communities, we believe that we can strengthen the connections between people and the places around them. In this sense, we aim to transform our residents into advocates for our built environment and ambassadors for Rhode Island.
Though most of our programs are free for participants, they aren’t free to organize. We depend on grants and contributions from people like you to fund the staffing, program supplies, and other administrative costs that make our programs possible. Join the Doors Open RI family by making a donation today. Every bit helps.
