Things have been a little quiet on the blog this week – we've been busy prepping for a R E A L L Y big announcement on Monday! – but the rest of the A Creative DC channels have been LIVE:
re: OFFLINE, we're thrilled to have sold out both the 7/22 and 8/5 dates for our offline, IRL PROMO workshops within a day of announcing each. It's part of our mission to flip the script on how D.C. creative culture is perceived, and promoting your own work and writing your own narrative is a huge part of that. We'll be announcing two new (and final) dates for PROMO to our newsletter subscribers before releasing the links to the general public on Wednesday, and the folks on our wait list will be the first to know. Email us at info@aCreativeDC.com to jump on.
THE SOCIAL MEDIAS: ENORMOUSLY grateful, humbled, and in awe of the document that is the #aCreativeDC feed on Instagram – it just surpassed 50,000 uses this week, with each and every visual helping tell the story of creative Washington, D.C. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We don't want to ruin the moment or the sentiment by also using this opportunity to tell you that we're on Twitter, but we did and, well, we're sorry.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT US. We're going light on the event 411 this week (because really, there WAS a lot about US), but there's a Nas: Time Is Illmatic screening + discussion on Sunday at the 14th & V location of Busboys and Poets – had to share.
ON OUR RADAR, IN GENERAL: Transformer Gallery's E12: Social Practice kicks off next week with artist Amy Hughes Braden; we've been digging keeping an eye on what MAKE/DO/WORK alum Donnie Gerald has been putting out – that's some recent work of his, above; and have you been to Off The Beaten Track? Go. As soon as possible. It's a visual 100, and an awesome excuse to make an afternoon out of NE and the Brookland/Edgewood neighborhoods
