202Creates, D.C.’s monthlong showcase of diverse and vibrant creative economy, got underway with a Sept. 1 kickoff.

Local artists, creative industry entrepreneurs, government officials and media members gathered at Edens’ Maurice Electric Courtyard in the Union Market District for a night of socializing, networking, music and artistic expression.

Local muralists and painters Aniekan Udofia, Edwin “Che” Merino and Superwaxx created art live on site during the event, which was catered by Honeycomb grocer and the Puddin’ food truck. In addition, the DC Wheels skateboard collective performed tricks.
