Get Some Culture….

Hello People,

There are several summer  festivals are kicking off this week.

The DC Hip-Hop Theater Festival (DC HHTF) begins this evening.  DC HHTF has showcased the stories, people, music, dance, and word of Hip-Hop live and on stage.  The mission of the HHTF to support innovative work from Hip-Hop and other urban forms of expression and to engage young people with this work through arts and education programs. In its 9th year, the festival is presented jointly by the Hip-Hop Theater Festival and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities .

The Capital Fringe Festival starts this Thursday. For five years, the festival provides outlets and opportunities for artists to self-produce in a nurturing and supportive environment while exposing their work to patrons and the local, national and international media that they would never be able to garner on their own.

The 1st DC Africa Festival will take place this Saturday. I am very excited about this event, and the District is definitely overdue in hosting this type of event.
