To advance our mission as a leader in supporting, developing and promoting the Metropolitan Washington, DC region as the arts and culture capital of our nation, the Cultural Alliance of Greater Washington offers a variety of programs and services to our members, our supporters and the public.
CultureCapital provides a platform for our members to promote, engage and inform the public of the wealth of arts, culture and entertainment activities available throughout Metro DC.
Launched in 2008, CultureCapital attracts 40,000+ visitors each month, visiting more than three pages per visit and staying on the site for over two minutes. The CAGW promotes CultureCapital participants through Google AdWords campaigns, partnerships with print and online publications, bloggers and social media platforms, employers and hotels, and a DC entertainment app. Our Insider e-blast, previewing the week ahead, is delivered to 15,000+ subscribers each Tuesday.
Promoting your organization's programing in CultureCapital is open to CAGW members who choose from one of the four participation levels. Each plan includes a dedicated page on CultureCapital providing visitor's detailed information about your organization. Participants then enter their events directly to the site (title, run dates, description, cost, link to box office). Each plan provides an increased level of exposure on the site and added platforms.
