Welcome to THEARC!

Officially opened in 2005, the Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus (THEARC) was built and is run by Building Bridges Across the River, a nonprofit 501-c-3 organization.  THEARC is a $27 million, 110,000 square foot , state-of-the-art campus located in Washington, DC's Ward 8.  With a mission of working to improve the quality of life for residents of Ward 8, THEARC is home to eleven of Washington, DC's best nonprofit agencies, all of which share the goal of helping children and adults reach their full potential.

In addition to Building Bridges Across the River and its nonprofit partner agencies, THEARC is home to THEARC Theater, a 365-seat community theater that is the only theater of any kind located east of the Anacostia River in Washington, DC-where children and adults alike can come together to expand their horizons through music, dance and stage events as well as community gatherings.  Read More...
