(Up)Rising Festival 2016 Returns This Sunday

The (Up)Rising Festival 2016 returns to the neighborhood on June 26 from 12-6:00 pm. Here is some info on this free festival from the event page:

An arts-focused festival that weaves its way through Rhode Island Avenue businesses, open areas, and vacant properties. This year, we explore the theme of creative collaborations – innovative and artistic ways to solve complex problems. The day includes performing and visual arts elements, hands-on activities, local food, drink, and retail vendors, as well as a chance to hang out with your Rhode Island Avenue small business owners and employees!

Participating artists share a revolutionary vision and engage festival-goers through heart, mind and body.

Check out this video about last years’ event:

The festival is organized by ReCreative Spaces, a non-profit that transforms vacant commercial space into artist studio and exhibition space.
