15 AOK artists met Sunday afternoon at the future AOK art space in the Independent Sector (IS) building downtown DC. After a tour of the spaces that will be available to AOK, we all gathered in the 9th floor conference room to brainstorm. It was an exciting conversation  that produced many ideas for resources and activities we could provide that would help young DC-area artists make their art, show their art and build arts community.

Everyone at AOK is super-excited about our new partnership with Independent Sector, and grateful that IS President Dan Cardinali and his team share our vision of building diverse community rooted in creativity and curiosity. We are thrilled to embark on this unique and powerful journey with IS.

Stay tuned for updates on events and activities in the new space.
