The Emergence Community Arts Collective

The ECAC formed in 2003 with a mission to empower the human spirit using traditional arts, education and organizing as tools for creating a shared community vision.We accomplish this mission by:
- Providing affordable space for community engagement;
- Providing programs to facilitate intergenerational and family interaction;
- Promoting the heritage of the community;
- Promoting green communities through environmental projects;
- Collaborating with youth development organizations; and
- Organizing a task force for residents to create a shared vision for the community.

We formally opened our doors at 733 Euclid Street, NW in 2006 after renovation of an abandoned building that was an eyesore in the neighborhood.

Event Details

In Her Honor: Celebrating the Service of Women in Pleasant Plains and Park View

The Emergence Community Arts Collective (ECAC), a cultural arts and community center located in NW Washington, DC, will celebrate historical and present day women who have provided dedicated service to the Pleasant Plains and Park View (Lower Georgia Avenue) communities, with all proceeds benefiting ECAC's current programs. In Her Honor: The Second Annual Celebration Of the Service Of Women In Pleasant Plains and Park View will feature Dr. E. Faye Williams, Chair of the National Congress of Black Women as a keynote speaker on March 22, 2012 at 6:30 pm at the Howard University Blackburn Center. The event will also welcome Candy Shannon as the MC and performances by Ayanna Gregory and Douglas "DJ" Jordan.

Great mothers, educators and organizers don't often make the history books, but deserve recognition nonetheless. In Her Honor shares stories of women committed to preserving the foundation of our community - its people. This event will publicly acknowledge behind-the-scenes work of just a few of the women who helped build the social and cultural foundation of our neighborhood, working tirelessly to maintain standards of culture, education, social service and civic engagement.

Our honorees this year will be:
Ms. Jacqueline Arguelles
Ms. Anita Berger
Ms. Deborah King Johnson
Ms. Luci Murphy
Ms. Marion Reid Flagg
Ms. Dolores Tucker
