Sitar Arts Center Benefit Gala 2021

Save the Date: Thursday, October 21, 2021

Sitar Arts Center’s Annual Benefit Gala raises essential funds for equitable arts education and year-round out-of-school-time activities for DC’s children, teens, and young adults. 80% of Sitar’s students are from families with low income and 85% are Black or Latinx.

At Sitar, our talented students take classes in art, music, dance, drama, creative writing, and a host of digital arts and design, taught by a teaching corps of volunteers and partners from our city’s finest institutions. Sitar offers transformational possibilities, creative exploration, and community, so that all young people can discover their full potential. By supporting Sitar Arts Center’s 2021 Benefit Gala, you are investing in their future.

Whether a virtual production online or a seated dinner in-person, our community’s health and well-being is top of mind. Sitar Arts Center is planning for both possible event formats and will announce the decision this summer.
