Last spring the (Up)Rising Festival came to Woodridge, right around the corner from Brookland on Rhode Island Ave, NE. The festival is organized by ReCreative Spaces, a non-profit that transforms vacant commercial space into artist studio and exhibition space. The event, which included curated visual and performing arts in a number venues is returning this June and is now seeking artists, performers and vendors. Check out this video about last years’ event and check out more details below.
