About the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival
The Atlas Performing Arts Center’s INTERSECTIONS Festival was founded in 2009 as a multi-day festival that brings artists and audiences alike to the developing H Street corridor in NE, Washington, DC. Since inception, the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival has presented the arts in a multitude of forms that offer a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the world in which we live. The Festival engages audiences and artists alike by sparking conversation, deeper connection, and community transformation.
