ASF (Artist Solidarty Foundation), in collaboration with MnM Creative, Underground DC and Teatro de la Septima Generacion/Seventh Generation Theatre bring you House of Art: Ways of Healing! The event is on Saturday, August 19th at 6pm at the Uptown Art House (3412 Connecticut Ave NW).
This year’s House is dedicated to discovering the various meanings that artists (and humxns) have for healing! With this, we are hoping to deepen our understanding as the artists of our generation and the diversity of our humxn experiences. House of Art: Ways of Healing is meant to be a safe space for all and meant to represent as many humxn communities as possible!
We will be presenting readings, music, poetry, one-minute plays, and we’ll talking about the ways we heal (including our upcoming annual DC Native American Heritage Theatre Festival in November).

Tsaitami Duchicela (Inka-Puruwa; they/them/theirs; Managing Director of Seventh Generation Theatre)
