This February, Congress Heights Arts and Culture Center (CHACC), located at 3200 Martin Luther King Avenue SE, will host NationHouse’s fundraising art exhibit featuring original art created by their students.

Founded by socially conscious visual and performance artists who attended Howard University in the late 1960s, NationHouse Positive Action Center is celebrating its 44th year of educating families in historical and cultural truth.

The name of the exhibit, Akwaaba, means welcome in the Ghanaian language of Twi, and this will be an opportunity to welcome this new partnership with CHACC and the community at large. This month-long exhibit with events on February 2nd, 16th and 25th will raise awareness for NationHouse and raise funds for the school’s programs and growth. It provides the students and teachers a chance to showcase their art for the wider community.

  • February 16th from 6pm to 10pm is the founders’ birthday celebration featuring live jazz
  • February 25th from 11am, to 2:30pm featuring brunch and the children’s show

Stop by CHACC to view and purchase NationHouse’s original art pieces.

CHACC is located at 3200 MLK Jr. Ave. SE.
