We all enjoy playing outside, with our kids at their tournaments, with our teammates in our weekly leagues, with our neighbors in pickup games. But we’ve all noticed a big problem that has started getting in the way of our play:
We have a real shortage of fields, both in the RFK Campus neighborhood and across the city.
At Events DC, we’re planning ways to help relieve some of this. We have developed an economical and efficient approach in the form of multi-purpose use community fields. As we’ve moved from master planning to concept design into schematics, we’ve had the opportunity to hone in on the program understanding from a technical perspective.Read more
On January 24, we hosted a quarterly meeting moderated by Greg O’Dell, Events DC President and CEO, and followed by Q&A session with area residents. It was great to see many of you in attendance. If you missed the meeting, or just want a reminder of the discussion, please visit http://www.rfkcampus.com/downloads to access the presentation.
Having completed the long-term planning, Events DC is now focused on five short-term elements. These are things we can do on the campus now that you and your neighbors will enjoy, plus we’re confident that they will make our area a regional asset to bring visitors:
- Multi-purpose community fields
- Market Hall
- Sports & Recreation Complex
- Pedestrian bridges with better connectivity to the site
- RFK Memorial
At Events DC, it is critical to us that you are always “in the loop.” We’re all on the same team when it comes to the RFK Campus redevelopment efforts. What’s important to you really is important to us, and the best way for us all to share important points is through continual communication.
But we understand how busy you are, and we don’t want to overload your inbox or fill up your calendar. We are always looking for ways to streamline communication and provide timely updates to you.
With this in mind, we have combined the RFK Quarterly Meeting and RFK Campus Redevelopment Project Update Meeting into one single event. We started this with the January 24 meeting and plan to continue this format for sharing all Campus updates and upcoming event announcements. Don’t forget to pencil us into your calendar for the upcoming RFK Campus/Redevelopment Project Meetings: April 9, July 9, and October 15.
Please remember you don’t have to wait until a meeting to share your thoughts with us. Reach out any time you’d like to voice an opinion. Contact us through this site, Facebook, or Twitter. And continue to let your friends and neighbors know that we’re #RFKReady.

Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) has engaged the DC community through art for over 45 years. The nonprofit organization provides artistic educational programs for about 20,000 people a year of all ages – from babies to adults. Instructional classes include photography, music, visual arts, dance, writing, and ceramics.
The organization is especially proud to provide a tuition assistance program: Not a single student has been turned away for an inability to pay for a class. That’s why we chose CHAW as our spotlight this month. We spoke with Elizabeth Rubando, marketing and development manager and ceramics department chair at CHAW about how CHAW makes art accessible for everyone in the DC area.Read more
