What we're about

We are an open community of adventurous self-starters turning big ideas into exciting projects. We do this by organizing open creativity and productivity sessions around town. Occasionally, we do optional side hacks, roundtables, and creative exercises at our sessions. If you have a project or work remotely, join us!

We've been to.... a White House Innovation Summit (https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/sicp), The Artisphere (http://www.meetup.com/dcnightowls/events/222117812/), The Capitol (http://www.meetup.com/dcnightowls/events/125641912/), and many other places in our awesome city.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead
