Resourcefulness, commitment, creativity – these are the characteristics that drive Rhode Island’s culture. We work furiously, we love our neighborhoods fiercely, and we don’t believe in giving up. That’s what shapes our culture of designers, innovators, and makers, and that’s how we attract some of the best thinkers in the world.
