INTERMISSIONDC is a series of public engagements led by the DC Office of Planning on DC culture and planning designed to gather community insights for the DC Cultural Plan. INTERMISSIONDC seeks to bring together residents, artists and community institutions to engage with one another on issues related to cultural development, preservation, production, expression and consumption. An INTERMISSIONDC Kickoff was held on July 20, 2016 to publicly launch the DC Cultural Plan effort and was attended by more than 500 District residents and stakeholders who participated in a series of conversations around culture, including cultural production, expression, identity, and the meaning of culture. During the event, we heard and recorded many ideas and thoughts that are helping to guide the course of research and inform the next steps of the process, which include upcoming INTERMISSIONDC Community Listening Sessions, to take place in October, 2016. Please stay tuned to our Calendar/Participate page for ongoing INTERMISSIONDC updates.
