:: KAARI - Korean-American Association of Rhode Island ::

The Korean American Association of Rhode Island (KAARI) has been a Rhode Island Expansion Art Program (RI-EAP) cohort for the past four years (2019-2022) and has conducted art programs such as gayageum classes and calligraphy with grant support. Last year, the Sounds of Korea event was a smashing success drawing nearly 700 attendees.  This performance provided an opportunity to introduce Korean traditional culture to the Rhode Island public. 


The KAARI participated in the RI-EAP graduation ceremony, held on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, at 3-5 pm, at the RI Foundation in Providence.  President Sangwook Ji, Culture Committee Chairperson Angela Sharkey, and Public Relations Director Chang-Yeon Kim attended the graduation ceremony and received the Governor's Certificate of Special Recognition.
