DC Metro Arts Groups are invited to join The 9/11 Arts Project

In light of recent events and the upcoming 10-year anniversary, it’s hard to avoid conversation about 9/11 and its aftermath.  We invite you to take an artistic stance on the subject as a participant in The 9/11 Arts Project— A collaboration of artists, social activists, non-profits, and interfaith groups in the Washington metropolitan area that explores individual, community and global healing 10 years after 9/11.

Initiated by Smith Farm Center for Healing and the Arts, a DC nonprofit arts, health, and education organization, the citywide project is intended to catalyze a “year of healing,” with multi-venue project events to take place around the anniversary and throughout the year.

Events and programs will span creative genres including dance and literary performances, visual arts exhibitions, facilitated dialogues, concerts, theatre, interfaith services, and film screenings, and will focus on such themes as social justice, multiculturalism, religious tolerance, art activism, individual healing, national trauma, and community engagement–to name a few.

Local Social Activist Groups, Galleries, Fine Artists, Community Groups, Interfaith leaders, Writers, Non-profits, Dance troupes, Poets, Theaters, and Musicians are invited to join the project by sharing their unique voices and contributing a program or event.
