About Sitar Arts Center
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 households with low income and 85% are Black or Latinx.
At Sitar, our talented students take classes in art, music, dance, drama, creative writing, 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.
