The A Creative DC Newsletter mailed out this week! Featuring y-o-u-r TRANSPORTATION imagery from the #aCreativeDC feed, it also announced the theme for next month's newsletter: WELLNESS. It's a topic we'll be asking all of our INTERVIEW subjects about over the course of this month, and one we'll have our eyes peeled for in the #aCreativeDC feed.
We'll feature our fave WELLNESS images in July's Newsletter, so tag your yoga poses + your zen moments; your healthful foods and your schnikes all throughout the month of June. Above, we peeped a few images from this photo set by Malik Cherry (@MogulMalik) ft. Meng Wang (@m3ngyy) in the #aCreativeDC feed last month and had to share. "Malik Cherry, 22 year old photographer & cinematographer, born & based in Washington, D.C.. Photography for me is the closest I'll ever get to time travel. It might sound a little funny, but I enjoy the emotional effect pictures & videos can have on people several years down the line."
We CAN'T EVEN with the sheer number of events going on this weekend in the District. Good luck navigating your options. Weekend-spanning events include the Our City Festival and the kick-off of the (almost month-long) Source Festival; otherwise our dream Saturday involves: yoga at the Botanical Gardens (!!!!), a 3PM artist talk with Dawne Langford at Transformer and then wandering into the very caszh BLACK WHOLE at Black Whiskey, getting down with ~cOoL vIbeS~ at The Cool DC's DIY vintage pop-up, and then late afternoon-ing it at Hole In The Sky for STREET MEAT / heading to Mount Rainier for the Fantastic Planet Exhibition. What is a weekend?
SUNDAY? NEXT WEEK? Local crafter Katie Stack of Stitch & Rivet is at the Luce Center at American Art, the D.C. Jazz Festival starts Wednesday, and the DC Punk Archives is having its fifth BASEMENT SHOW (all ages! free!) on Thursday. And now we're mic-dropping it, re: events and sending you over to the professionals: get down with BYT and Going Out Guide and East City Art and OMG, it's all easy-listening from here on out:
LOCAL READS: Applause for Randi Gloss of GLOSSRAGS for the Fast Company feature, and to D.C. designer + hand-letterer Carolyn Sewell on her interview at HOW Design. Lots of solid career advice there, regardless of your field. Tilling Phase: Reviewed, and LAST ONE: BEER.
OF GENERAL INTEREST: How Stussy Became a $50 Million Streetwear Brand Without Selling Out, and senior citizen artists are the focus in this piece at W Magazine.
Enjoy the weekend – and tag it! #aCreativeDC.
