WPA is now accepting 100-word project idea submissions from artists to organize projects that present the art or ideas of other artists. These projects can take the form of exhibitions, talks, visiting artist lectures, workshops, discussions, performances, podcasts, immersive experiences, screenings, and other imaginative engagements. We encourage artists from all backgrounds and disciplines to submit.
WPA opened as one of the District's earliest alternative spaces in 1975. In addition to providing artists a place to experiment, to meet artists from outside the city, WPA was also a place of belonging. Today, as the DC artist community becomes increasingly fractured, we believe it is more important than ever for WPA to support and nourish artist communities. That is why our programming is artist-driven. Artists need places where they can create the art scene they want to live in. WPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are fully tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law.
