Where are you located?
We are located at 6950 Maple St. NW, a few blocks from the Takoma Metro station (Red line).
Do you have parking?
We have a small lot on the lawn of the south side of the house (the side furthest from Carroll Ave.) that can accommodate approximately 8-10 cars. To reach the lot, drive just past Rhizome and make a right onto Vine Ave. then make a right into our driveway. Please do not park in the Zipcar lot that's adjacent to us on the north (Carroll Avenue) side.
Can I lead a class or workshop at Rhizome?
Absolutely! We embrace a grassroots approach to community education whereby anyone with the relevant expertise and passion in a particular subject is empowered to lead a class or workshop, not just professional educators. This approach greatly expands the kinds of programs that can be offered by leveraging the expertise already residing right here in our community. In a very real sense, the community is the curriculum. If there is a class, workshop or performance that you would like to lead, please let us know
How are you funded?
RhizomeDC is a 501(c)3 educational arts non-profit organization. We are only able to offer our programs thanks to the generous support of community members like you and local granting organizations. Please consider making a donation today to help us to continue to bring innovative educational programs to Takoma Park and SIlver Spring.
All fees and tuition go directly to support RhizomeDC's programs. Our all-volunteer Board is made up entirely of local residents, averaging over 13 years in the Takoma community. They are: Ann Beman, Tom White, Dennis Lucarelli, Steve Korn, Leslie Bumstead and Layne Garrett.
