Pop-up block party at Brookland Arts Walk

DC Design Week’s signature pop-up shop is back in person at the Brookland Arts Walk this year!

Join us for a block party hosted with Terratorie Maps + Goods and sponsored by Taoti Creative, featuring artworks from local artists and on-site vendors.

Bring your sketchbook, a blank cotton t-shirt, or a tote bag to make a fun DCDW custom block print with The Block Print Bike. Shop the arts and goods made by local creatives.

Enter to win prizes from our sponsors, like tickets to Artechouse DC's current exhibit, design skills classes from Moxie, and free swag sponsored by Custom Ink. Connect with fellow creatives in the area.

Join the dance class Party Grooves with Amy O'Neal from 7-8 pm at Edgewood Arts Center, directly across from the Brookland Arts Walk. Learn or relearn the foundational grooves of Hip Hop dances from the 90’s and how they connect to the steps and grooves that come out of House dance culture. Come ready to sweat, learn some Black social dance history, and connect with others through the Boom Bap era of Hip Hop and Soulful House music. We encourage you to register in advance. Please arrive 10 minutes early to check-in and be prepared to wear a mask during the dance session.

When possible, in-person events will be moved to Zoom and a refund should not be expected. If an event is canceled in its entirety, a refund will be issued. In either scenario you will be notified immediately.
