CivicFest combines music, dance, public art, workshops and volunteer opportunities to inspire people to work together for the long term across class, race, and ideology. Building a more equitable DC, and by extension a better world, often begins with a single touchpoint. CivicFest aims to provide that.
We will be collaborating with Aphrosoul Lukumi, whose production, Homage to the Ancestors, combines music, dance and holistic wellness activities for the mind, body and spirit including yoga, qigong, reiki, and spiritual attunements. Dance to classic, world, soulful, deep and afro house music. Join us to give homage to the Ancestors and honor nature in the way it was intended – as a community.
We will also be collaborating with Washington Parks & People, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of our city’s parks. WPP played a critical role in the revitalization of Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park and maintains its use as a community space. Take advantage of this historic park on July 21!
