Artomatic is an amazing arts festival that happens every couple of years and showcases over a 1,000 artists at a time. But, many people don’t know that they work year-round on social and other events for the DC arts scene. For their latest project, they have collaborated with other area groups (ReSourceArts, Hamiltonian Artists, Dance Place (Art on 8th), Menkiti Group, CulturalDC, and NÜRISH) to create the DC Artist Exchange (DCax). From the DCax website:
DCax is a series of events and tools designed to explore new ways to build community. The kick-off series includes five panel discussions around the broad topic of artist space in the city, four in-person creative networking events called Swap Meets, and a website (dcartistexchange.org) meant to engage members through a virtual community space.
The first of these panel discussions will be on Saturday, July 20th at 10:30 am. We are thrilled that the topic for the panel discussion series kick off is Brookland and its artists spaces. We hope to learn more about the exciting developments in the ever-growing Brookland area arts scene. The panel discussion is free to attend – register here.
