Space4 is an initiative that will bring the arts closer to every corner of DC. In expanding upon the mission of CulturalDC – to make space for art – we will transform and activate spaces across the District to create new areas for performing and visual arts. Space4 is an evolution of our critically acclaimed Mead Theatre Lab and Flashpoint Gallery programs that will bring fresh, groundbreaking visual and performing arts events to neighborhoods throughout the nation’s capital.
Now is your chance to get involved! CulturalDC is proud to announce an open call for visual and performing artists for Space4. We are looking for exciting artists that will bring spaces all across DC to life like never before. Are you pushing the boundaries of your art form? Are you excited to get your art involved in local communities? If your answer is yes to both of these questions, then this opportunity is for you!
