The battle to sustain space for independent art and artists has always been a fraught with struggle. This is true now more than ever. We are committed to hustling and creating space and opportunities for local independent art in our nation’s capital, we hope you will join us.

Capital Fringe has been one of the most supportive places in DC for cutting edge music, art, and theater. Many of their presentations and productions would not be possible anywhere else in the city, and it is a rare venue for open creativity in the US. The space is inviting and inclusive to its community in Trinidad, DC. Fringe has hosted many fantastic performances at libraries all across DC in every quadrant, where people in those neighborhoods have the opportunity to see and hear local culture that they may not regularly have the opportunity to experience. It is this mission of community alongside a dedication to radical art that makes Fringe an indispensable entity in this city. From the Fringe Festival, to their regular programming, Capital Fringe is quite simply one of the most important arts organizations in Washington, DC. - Luke Stewart
