Source Festival celebrates 5th Anniversary

In it’s 5th Anniversary, the Source Festival created by Cultural DC, continued its basis of showcasing the creativity of both promising and well-established artists through three weeks of performances that were held from June 8 – July 1, 2012.

The Festival is reputed for bringing in new work focusing itself around interdisciplinary and contemporary ideas. All the performances took place in the Source Theatre at 1835 14th Street, NW where the first Source Festival originally began in 2008 after Cultural DC refurbished the space in 2006.

The Source focuses on allowing artists to be innovative and experiment in the forefront in their field, which is the same creativity the Source Festival brings in the performances they showcase.
