Arts, Beats & Community

Meso Creso is a nonprofit Washington DC-based, cross-cultural arts collective that cultivates creativity without boundaries. Named for Mesopotamia's Fertile Crescent — often considered the cradle of civilization — Meso Creso fuses the whimsy of the Burning Man community with DC's cultural diversity and social consciousness. Whether putting on our own dance parties or participating in others', Meso Creso is known for its roving hookah lounge, highly crafted art installations, joyful whistles and hand claps, and a DJ lineup that represents the rich cultural mix of its community.

Meso Creso brings together artists of all stripes — pros and newbs, DJs and DIYers, the mad and the meticulous. We leave pretenses and expectations at the door to celebrate our differences and the contributions — large and small — that we have to share with each other, our overlapping communities, and the city of Washington DC that brings us together.
