The Spilling Ink Project and Srishti Dances of India are part of the Atlas Performing Arts Center’s 12-day INTERESECTIONS Festival, which runs February 23-March 13.

The Washington Post is the Founding Media Sponsor of INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival presented by the Atlas Performing Arts Center. The festival features 12 days of multidisciplinary, curated performances that showcase the diverse talent of the D.C.-area’s established and emerging artists and celebrate art as an inspiration for conversation and connection.

Attendees can also enjoy The Washington Post Café Concerts which offer free live music before and between ticketed main stage shows in the Kogod Lobby of the Atlas, giving patrons a chance to meet and mingle with artists and other attendees.

“We hope to create through the arts a place where we all can meet, bringing with us our past and our present, with our eyes set on what's ahead.  We will meet at a crossroads of multiple perspectives offered by artists of all ages, cultures and races.  We will meet as audiences from every neighborhood in DC. From this intersection of people and place, an energy will be ignited -- an energy that transforms.  Our hope is that we will all go down roads we have not traveled before, and along the way, find new seeds for understanding about ourselves, our community and this richly-connected, ever-evolving place that is America,” said Mary Hall Surface the Festival Artistic Director.

INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival runs each weekend from February 25-March 13. For more information, to view the schedule or to purchase tickets, visit:
