I'll be slinging cards for donations for Red Dot Campaign from 4-6pm, but this event will be a full day of expression and power. Check out the details below!
Since Red Dot’s inception, creative expression has been our foundational approach to highlighting the social, cultural and political practices surrounding civil and reproductive rights. Our annual art show serves as a platform for artists within our community to display work geared towards our collective consciousness.
Last year‘s show included a combination of visual work, installations, and live paintings that highlighted sustainable menstrual practices. This year, we want to broaden the scope of work and take time to reflect. In light of increasing physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion within our community, we want to offer a body of work that not only reflects on how we survived, but also how we channel negativity into change.We aim to thrive. We encourage all project proposals to align with that message so that we establish a clear dialogue centered around positive action and affirmation.

RSVP here to make sure your name’s on the list. Show your confirmation at our check-in table to receive a complimentary food & drink tickets. And DON'T FORGET to bring in a menstrual product donation–additional F&B tickets will be given out in exchange for donations!
As we mentioned before, our annual art show doubles as a donation drive and we kindly ask guests to contribute at least one (1) pack of menstrual products or the monetary equivalent ($5-10) in exchange for entry to our show. Past recipients of our collections include local DC/NYC homeless shelters, halfway homes, underfunded schools or disaster relief efforts, thanks to the continued support of the Red Dot community.
If you can't make it to our show, ongoing donations are always welcome here!
