A Note From the Executive Director, B. Stanley
Welcome to the District of Columbia Arts Center. This manual has been designed to help make
your time here enjoyable for yourself, and for the staff of DCAC. It is our intention to lay out our
needs explicitly so that we may further serve your needs as production time draws nearer for you.
To that end, it is important that you understand what DCAC is all about.
DCAC is dedicated to:
1) providing a showcase for emerging and under-recognized artists in the Washington
2) encouraging cross-cultural exchange and participation
3) promoting communication and respect among artists and the community
4) inspiring fresh approaches in artistic development
5) assisting artists in the business of production.
Throughout the week, a lot of people use both our theater and gallery space. It's very important
that we always respect those who use this space and their needs, and try to make them aware of
You are encouraged to dialogue with any other artist(s) or groups who share time and space with
you in any manner. It is our experience that the better the communication between individuals
and groups, the easier it is for everyone to work together. While this manual contains a lot of
information about how we expect you to behave at the Center, it does not include our trust that
you will exercise basic common sense.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Once again, welcome to
DCAC and I hope your experience here is all that you expect. We wish you every success with
