We just awarded our March Grant to the super talented Experience Counterpoint. Now, if you’re in DC this week, you will have the opportunity to Experience Counterpoint for yourself at our launch party this Wednesday 23rd March. From 6:30 pm at One Lounge: 1606 20th Street NW • Washington, DC20009.

More details and tickets here: http://dcawesome.eventbrite.com/.

Counterpoint will be joined by a host of other Awesome people and projects in the “Awesome Showcase”, where you will have a chance to get to know them, learn about their projects, and donate “Tokens of Awesome” (which we will convert into cold hard “cee ay dollar sign ache” at the end of the night) to help further their awesome projects!

The showcase will represent the wide range of projects we hear from and will include such awesomeness as:

  • A life-size fabric sculpture of I Dream of Jeanne’s bottle
  • Painting with Light
  • Hybrid Robot Instruments
  • A new type of drip filtration system
  • A Found Art and Photogrpahy Exhibition
  • Scrap Action
  • And of course our previous Awesome Grantees – FabLab, Ward 8 Farmers Market, and the Petworth Jazz Festival.

The party is open to everyone awesome, but priority will be given to ticket holders, so get in and grab yours now! http://dcawesome.eventbrite.com/
