Community Meeting: Tuesday, January, 10, 6:30pm to 8pm

The DC Office of Planning (OP) was recently awarded a $250,000 grant from ArtPlace to be administered in four neighborhoods across the city, including Anacostia. OP plans to create Arts and Culture Temporiums in four emerging creative neighborhoods where vacant and/or underutilized storefronts and empty lots would be transformed into an artist showcase/village for 3-6 months. The target neighborhoods are: Anacostia, Brookland, Deanwood, and Central 14th Street, NW. The goal is to find 2-4 blocks with both vacant/underutilized buildings and empty lots in close proximity that could be completely transformed and promote artist entrepreneurship and community building in the process.

OP is partnering with ARCH Development Corporation to implement the Arts and Culture Temporium project in Anacostia.  Please join us on January 10, 2012 at 6:30pm at 1800 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE (DHCD Community Resource Room) to learn more about the project and provide feedback on preliminary concepts and ideas.

  • Date: January 10, 2012
  • Time: 6:30pm – 8pm
  • Location: 1800 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE (DHCD Community Resource Room)
