Politics & Art

Performance Information

CALL FOR ARTISTS: Politics & Art will spotlight D.C.-based artists who use the power of their voices to inspire, entertain, and empower. We invite artists who live in the District to apply to participate and to tell us how they would like to use their voices—whether in song, spoken word, or a host of other expressive modes—to channel stories and share messages. This is a showcase format, with multiple locations that will be activated within the Wilson Building. Each act will perform a set of 15 minutes.

Join us at The Wilson Building on June 13 for a celebration of D.C.’s vibrant arts community with performances by singers, vocal ensembles, bands, spoken word artists, and actors. Artists and ensembles are invited to apply free of charge, and will be selected by a panel of arts and community leaders.
