Halcyon is a new kind of nonprofit organization, living up innovators and creators and giving them the tools and opportunities they need to bring their ideas to life. Some of Halcyon’s signature programs are residential fellowships including the Halcyon Incubator, Incubator Intensives, and Halcyon Arts Lab. Other programs include Fast Forward, a series of dialogues with visionary women leaders, and the Halcyon Awards, which recognize extraordinary accomplishments in areas like art, social enterprise, and policy. 

Halcyon is also the organization that plans and presents By The People! The festival is our way of taking these programs and their values, and bringing them to a broader audience. Since our founding, Halcyon has built programing around the core tenets of space, community, and access, continuously evolving to identify and provide a haven for big dreamers and risk-takers the world over.

Halcyon will be the location for just one event during the festival - an artist talk with the founders of For Freedoms in conversation with Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton.
