The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), DC Creates! Public Art Program would like to invite you to participate in our “Pop-Up Public Art Project” on a donated plot of land at 3rd and H Street, NE is a partnership initiative between DCCAH, the DC Office of Planning and the H Street BID to activate “Interactive H Street”. This initiative will establish a 14-block creative corridor along H Street NE, creating a framework for civic innovation; activation of dormant real estate; and creative business incubation. This project will make a critical contribution toward H Street becoming a destination for arts, business and community experiences in city design.
“Interactive H Street” is inspired by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD). MICD has helped transform communities through design by preparing mayors to be the chief urban designs for their cities. MICD mayors know that the arts and culture contribute greatly as core components in building livable and sustainable communities. Cities across the country create diverse projects through the support of the MICD program. Projects include planning, design, and arts engagement.
