Festival center is becoming a neighborhood meeting place as well as a source of informative and inspirational groups and classes that attract diverse attendees who are interested in exploring practical spirituality.
The quiet chapel space is open every day to anyone in the neighborhood for
prayer and meditation.

I participated in the Festival Center's Discipleship Year program. This experience changed my life in no small way. The program offered practical experience in working for social justice in our immediate community, classes on spiritual and social practices, and spiritual growth individually and in community. Every part of the program was enriching, challenging, and helpful to my growth as a person interconnected with my community. The Festival Center's Servant Leadership School attracts a rich diversity of persons that form caring relationships and support one another. Without the Festival Center's programs, I would not have discerned my vocation in community development and organizing nor would I have been encouraged by such a passionate faith community.

The Great!

The Festival Center provided the opportunity for me to grow in faith and action while working for social justice in the surrounding neighborhoods. Through The Festival Center's programs I learned practices of anti-racism, non-violence, simple living, and community life.

Publicize more widely in the DC area.

The classes and programs offered at the festival center have inspired and empowered me and many others to give more freely and fully of ourselves and to seek to make a difference in the lives of others. They have certainly made a difference in my life by helping me connect my faith with the needs of the world.

The Festival Center offers very inexpensive classes to the community through its Servant Leadership School - these classes are focused on spirituality, the common good, empowerment, community engagement, and similar topics. I've taken a couple classes through SLS and thoroughly enjoyed them. They offer discounts to interns and volunteers.
The Festival Center also serves as a community space offered to non-profits and other community organizations for use. I took a community violence prevention workshop and yoga classes at the Festival Center through this initiative. I have always found the Festival Center to be a warm, friendly, community-oriented place.

The Great!

The entire Adams Morgan neighborhood around the Festival Center is positively influenced by its existence here. It is part of a network of non-profits dedicated to the common good of the local community and through the classes I've taken there, I've been able to become a more engaged citizen.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue the yoga classes, expand programming. More outreach to Spanish-speaking community.
