Co-founder of DC Creators
& Founder of the DC Creators Network
Hello, I'm Davina
“People tell me to put a face to DC Creators, so here I am. This is my passion project! I’ve always had a deep desire to help others discover their own creative potential and a social soul that takes action where there are possibilities. DC is very creative at its roots, so my best friend Jorge (RIP) and I started hosting creative POP-UP events (late 2014) in the DC area under name of DC Creators Productions (right after Burning Man). We aimed to give artists access to the right tools and knowledge so they can find their own creative outlets. Because what we need is a way to share & create at our fullest potential.
We have grown so much thanks to our supporters! We started in DC, and have since expanded our outreach to the surrounding areas of DMV (DC, MD, VA) & RVA (Richmond VA). Now we are able to connect virtually as we produced the DC Creators Network (DCCN) we promised our followers. This is our COVID response. You see, as a Web Designer, I have access to the right tools & skills to design a complicated website such as this. So I gathered a small team with complementary developer skills, and drive to help transition us online, and help mold this into a useful tool so we can focus on our creative goals, together.”
A Brief History of the DC Creators Journey
We started the DC Creators community after returning from Burning Man in 2014. Afterward, realized everyone is a creator at their core.
We host creative POP-UP events & Workshops around the DMV (DC, MD, VA) & RVA (Richmond VA) areas.
We also host Art Shows & Warehouse pARTies, co-create & collaborate with other collectives.
Co-Founder Jorge unexpectedly passed in 2019. Then COVID-19 emerged in 2020, so we paused to mourn & reformat our program.
We produced the New DC Creators Network (2021) so we can safely connect & share anything creative online.
We’re back stronger than ever! Proceeding with our event productions that are one of a kind, with visually captivating atmospheres, face & body painting offerings, painted models, mood lighting, dance music, and more. In 2023, our (NEWLY FORMED) DC Creators Body Art Collective will be producing “Live Body Art Fashion Shows & Exhibitions,” where the patrons watch the creative process, spicing it up with a runway walk to view the art in the end. We will soon produce unique experiences that transforms any event into a memorable one.
In Loving Memory of
Co-Founder "Jorge Goncalves"
May he always be remembered.
