The Atlas is an historic and cultural anchor in the Near Northeast community of Washington, DC. The Atlas fosters and presents stellar art in theatre, dance, music, vocal and choral work, spoken word, and more. We support and partner with DC arts makers – our Arts Partners – including Capital City Symphony, Congressional Chorus and the American Youth Chorus, Mosaic Theater Company of DC, Joy of Motion Dance Center, and Step Afrika! The Atlas also leads in its arts education initiatives through our City at Peace youth development program and the Atlas’ Stagecraft Training and Apprenticeship Program. Here at the Atlas we also make a difference through our community arts programs such as Mobilizing Our Community where close to 900 people created over 60 stellar mobiles and experienced the power of community, balance and connection. In the winter each year, we produce our popular Intersections Festival that hosts close to 400 artists and performing groups who entertain and engage 1000’s of patrons in a multi-week long festival. Our mission as a community focused arts organization is to bring people together through the arts to create, connect, and engage through innovative performances, events, and initiatives spanning a range of artistic expressions, traditions, and cultures. As the catalyst for neighborhood growth and change, the Atlas plays a major role in the regional creative economy and is where the arts, culture, and connection happen on H Street.
