Honor the past, present and future of Southwest DC at Crossing the Street: SW Is… – a performance and community event celebrating the bold and powerful voices of SW!
SW Is… is the culmination of Crossing the Street, a District-wide creative placemaking initiative sponsored by the DC Office of Planning. The project empowers residents of rapidly changing neighborhoods to respond to the development around them through the arts. YPT is the Crossing the Street curator for SW, and has been working with local artists and community leaders to write theatrical pieces addressing issues that affect the neighborhood. On Saturday, October 22, professional actors and community members will bring those pieces to life!
Join YPT for performances, art and family fun in the lot near 4th & I St. SW (behind the Safeway complex). The main event will run from 12-3pm, followed by a community celebration in The Lot SW! Free and open to the public!
