“Washington Revels at 35” Retrospective

To celebrate our 35th Anniversary, we’d like to take a trip down memory lane on social media and we need your help!

Washington Revels wants to share favorite stories and photos collected by Revelers over the past 35 years. If you’d like to contribute to this fun project, here’s what to do:

  1. Send an email to rwixon@revelsdc.org with your favorite story and/or a picture*, or even a scan of a meaningful Revels document (like a program cover, flyer, poster, etc). Please give us some context for any images/documents you submit (the name of the event, where it took place, why it is special to you, who’s in the photo, etc.
    *If there are other people besides yourself in your photo and you think they might prefer not to have their picture posted on Facebook, please check with them first if possible or select another photo.
  2. Be sure to provide a date (or a best guess).
  3. In your email, please include a sentence giving Washington Revels permission to use the contents of your email on social media, in our e-news, and on our website.

As we get responses, we’ll post them on Facebook or on the Revels blog (we may need to edit them a bit for different formats), and we’ll start pushing them out over the next several weeks, using the hashtag #RevelsDC35. How frequently we post will depend on how many submissions we get, but we’d love to keep this going for a few months, at least!

Remember, please respond directly to rwixon@revelsdc.org and submit all your materials digitally (no hard copies to the office, please).

We can’t wait to hear your stories!

And don’t forget to follow Revels on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@RevelsDC).
