The Capital Fringe Fest Asks, 'Does Art Matter'

In a time of war, environmental disasters, and economic crisis, how does art in
the nation’s capital make a difference? Join Liberated Muse's Khadijah "Moon" Ali-Coleman and other artists located in the DC metro area for a candid discussion and networking opportunity to discuss "DOES ART MATTER". This annual conversation is part of the Capital Fringe Fest's Training Factory which takes place during the festive Capital Fringe Festival. Past participants in the discussion have included Liberated Muse member Princess of Controversy and Jessica Solomon, founding producing of The Saartjie Project.

The Training Factory session will be at Fort Fringe (607 NY Ave NW) and begin promptly at 5:30pm-6:30pm.  Join us for an interactive discussion with area artists, art-watchers, and producers as we discuss art-making in DC and where it connects justice, protest, community and transformation. Visit the PinkLine Project to read about last year's discussion.
