Mission Statement

CulturalDC creates opportunities for artists and arts organizations that stimulate economic development and improve the quality of life in the greater Washington region.

We envision the arts as a driving force in community development and as an integral part in sustaining DC as a vibrant metropolitan area. CulturalDC serves artists and arts organizations, arts consumers, developers and residents in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

CulturalDC began in 1998 when a coalition of government, business and creative leaders recommended the formation of a nonprofit organization to increase the impact of DC’s creative community. Our efforts ensure that there are spaces and resources for artists and arts organizations to live, create, exhibit and perform throughout the city.

Description

CulturalDC sees the arts as a driving force in building sustainable communities. We provide a wide range of programs and services that support artists’ ability to live and work in the city and give audiences access to affordable and accessible cutting-edge visual and performing art from artists living and working today.

At our spaces Flashpoint and Source, we are creating the platforms that deliver art to thousands of residents across the region. Visual artists make headlines at Flashpoint Gallery and performing artists gain new followings at the Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint. During Source Festival, 300 members of the creative community join forces to create 3 weeks of new work, including 18 10-minute plays, three full-length plays and four Artistic Blind Dates. We also spearhead creative placemaking initiatives through art space development, public art and artist housing.
