What we're about
Welcome to the Washington Arts & Culture Meetup!
This is a group for anyone who enjoys meeting new friends, and sharing their love for Arts & Culture of all kinds - including Art Galleries, Cultural Activities, Museums, Live Music, Social Dancing, Foreign Films, Travel, Ethnic Food and more!
We do MEMBER-hosted outings all over the DMV to share our favorite activities and events. This can be everything from museum visits and art exhibits to live performances and discovering new cuisine.
I started this group to meet other art and culture enthusiasts, and to be introduced to fun activities and events that YOU enjoy!
This group is MEMBER-driven and MEMBER-hosted!
ALL EVENTS ARE TO COME FROM THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF OUR MEMBERS!
The purpose of this Meetup is for YOU to share your cultural and arts interests with our group. Whoever joins this group does so with the expectation that, as a member, you are strongly encouraged to HOST events and activities that you enjoy.
Want to share your love of Pho at your favorite Vietnamese restaurant? Share it with our Meetup! Want to meet new friends, while sharing your favorite exhibit at The Phillips Collection? Share it with a Meetup event!
If you have any ideas related to arts & culture, AND you are willing to host, please let us know!
1. When you notice an event you’d like to host, or when you have an idea for an event you’d like to host - send me a message with the idea or just state that you’d like to be an organizer.
2. I will promptly set you up as a TEMPORARY Organizer -- which will allow you to post and host the event.
3. Once you are an Organizer, you are free to post any “appropriate” event.
4. Be sure your description includes ALL important details - the What, Where, What time and How Much? (Also include any pre- or post event gathering/get-together).
5. As an organizer, you will: ARRIVE EARLY - and greet your fellow members, and CARRY A "MEETUP" SIGN - (home-made is okay) so members can identify you.

ULTIMATE RULE: If you are attending an event -- don’t be a NO-SHOW!
This causes problems for your host. If your plans change, change your RSVP.
If you have any questions, please send me a message.
