The Future of the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus

Please be advised, the regularly scheduled RFK Quarterly Meeting has been rescheduled to August 27th. Click here to RSVP!

After extensive planning, outreach, public input and involvement, Events DC is proud to present two concepts for the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus. Our vision for the Campus’ future is to create a revitalized site that celebrates its iconic beauty and history – while also acting as a first-class example of urban living that can attract residents and visitors and at the same time maintain a strong local identity.

Acting as a catalyst for the city, the RFK Campus future project will also make a substantial economic impact on the District, by reinvesting into the city through job opportunities, youth programs, local business development and ample community benefits and neighborhood serving amenities for residents to enjoy.

Community Spotlight: The Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts

The Theatre Lab has been enhancing the District’s arts community for more than 25 years. Each year, over 2,200 drama students receive instruction from the school’s top-notch faculty, all of whom are actors, directors, or playwrights working in professional theatre. Students range from kids in beginner summer camp to adults preparing for a professional theatre career, and the school reflects this diverse set of needs by offering a wide range of classes meant to work into an already busy schedule.

The Theatre Lab is DC’s largest nonprofit school for the dramatic arts. It brings theatre to underserved kids, teens, and adults through tuition assistance and work-study programs. The free Life Stories program teaches self-expression and drama to vulnerable populations, such as incarcerated and at-risk youth, homeless women, recovering addicts, wounded veterans, and seniors.

This month, we talked to Deb Gottesman to find out more about why The Theatre Lab has been recognized as one of the top 50 arts and humanities programs in the country serving youth beyond school hours.
