The Atlas Performing Arts Center is a nonprofit performing arts venue in a historic theater in the H Street, Northeast community in Washington, DC. The Atlas fosters and presents stellar art in film, dance, music, theater, vocal and choral work, spoken word, and beyond. The Atlas has four performance spaces and often hosts free events in its lobby. Atlas produces Atlas Presents performances and also rents its spaces to other artist groups so they can create their own productions. Atlas supports and partners with DC arts makers — Resident Arts Partners — including Capital City Symphony, Mosaic Theater Company of DC, Visionaries of the Creative Arts (VOCA), Joy of Motion Dance Center, and Black Leaves Dance Company. The Atlas also leads in its arts education initiatives through its City at Peace youth development program and the Atlas Arts Lab. In the winter each year, Atlas produces its popular INTERSECTIONS Festival, which hosts close to 300 artists and performing groups who entertain and engage thousands of patrons in a multi-week-long celebration of the arts.
