Providence, RI About

Queer.Archive.Work is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit reading room, publishing studio, and project space serving Providence, RI and beyond. → our mission

Who we serve: QAW welcomes all, but priority is given to LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, immigrant, disabled, and other underserved folks. This is a free, open, and accessible anti-racist community space (please see our code of conduct). Normally we’d love for you to come by to chat about your work, use our risograph printer, make zines, and spend time in the reading room, but we’re currently closed to the public. We hope to re-open this summer, with proper safety protocols in place.

We’re at 40 Sprague Street, #1G Providence, RI 02907, on the west side of Providence, in a building that used to be a rubber bicycle tire factory. Founder/Director/Attendant: Paul Soulellis (send me a note if you’d like to plan a visit for later this summer!)
