ABOUT  THE FESTIVAL

The DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival is a self-producing festival, where both established and emerging artists can present their work. For some, applying is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create, produce and perform a show. The Festival strives to encourage artists in our festival to give expression to their talents and develop their artistic freedom; without any barriers between their work and the audience. We are also the first theatre festival of its kind to recognize the importance of both urban and traditional theatre.

Come and Experience one of the Nation's Best Festivals
