By The People 2019
By The People is a free and accessible arts and dialogue festival in Washington, D.C. The 2019 festival includes two full weekends of programs for all ages, an expanded series of dialogues, interactive art installations that address issues of equity and justice, art in unexpected places and a large art-infused gathering on the National Mall. Once again, the festival will focus on our country's founding principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – all with the goal of connecting people from diverse backgrounds, building bridges across the cultural divide and promoting open and civil discourse.
By The People is organized by Halcyon – a nonprofit that supports civic-minded artists and social entrepreneurs – in partnership with other organizations
