The Corner at Whitman-Walker connects cultures and communities through programming of exhibitions, events, educational initiatives and artistic research, in order to increase access to art and to other cultural knowledge production. The Corner generates content around health and social justice concerns from an intersectional LGBTQ perspective by focusing on local and global contemporary art. We activate the creative potential of each and every person and gather a public that will help shape a hopeful vision of the future.
Whitman-Walker operates a community-centered enterprise that provides primary medical care, behavioral health care, dental care, and a range of health-related legal and support services, with specialties in LGBTQ+ and HIV care, to more than 20,000 individuals and families annually in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan region. At Whitman-Walker Health, our mission is to offer affirming community-based health and wellness services to all.
We empower all persons to live healthy, love openly, and achieve equality and inclusion.
THE CORNER ENVISIONS ITSELF AS A COMMUNAL GARDEN IN WHICH A DIVERSITY OF SPECIES GROW, NURTURING BODY AND SOUL, A SPACE FOR EXPERIMENT, A CLASSROOM, A TOOL BOX, A VENUE FOR (RE)PRESENTATION.
