The Washington, DC chapter of Gamma Xi Phi Professional Arts Fraternity hosted a Creative Conversation as part of the organization’s National Arts and Humanities Month observances. The theme of the discussion was “Linking Young Artists to Opportunities.”
Held at the Greater Tried Stone Baptist Church, a favorite venue of the Beta Chapter, members of the community were invited to share their ideas for how the fraternity may best serve young artists in the Washington area. Invited guests included working artists, leaders of arts nonprofit organizations, and other members of organizations with arts components. The chapter provided a light lunch and lively discussion ensued.
Action items that the group provided to the fraternity will help develop the local implementation of the fraternity’s Young Artisans Awards program.

Every stroke of the brush, stitch of the needle, or moment of the memoir uniquely marks our society and contributes to our national character. This month, we recognize the ways the arts and humanities have forever changed our country, and we recommit to ensuring every American has the opportunity and the freedom to question, discover, and create. — Barack Obama, President of the United States of America
