Garage Art Party
This event series attracted thousands of attendees collectively. PAKKE partnered with dozens of artists in the DMV area and each event raised awareness surrounding social or environmental issues through art.
Sweet & Spooky: A Halloween Revue
This 400+ attendee event brought laughter, performance, and raised thousands for a local LGBTQ charity in Washington DC. This event could not have been possible without the dozen volunteers!
Rabbit Hole Cinema: Phantom of the Opera
Although we were only able to organize a few of these before the pandemic hit, we are excited to bring back obscure, independent films to local communities.
Director, Event Curation
Dave Chandrasekaran has been organizing political and creative events in the Mid-Atlantic for nearly 10 years. From small, intimate political meet-&-greets, to 300+ person music and dance productions, to small and large scale non-profit fundraisers. Dave has cultivated a network of artists, musicians and performers, particularly people of color, women, and LGBTQ communities, and integrates unique entertainment experiences with education on major social justice causes.
Smells Like DNA: A Pheromone Party
One of our first and definitely one of the most memorable. This event gained national awareness from The Washington Post and was a trivia question in NPR’s Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me.
Art & Activism: Garage Art Party
Activism is the game for PAKKE in a lot of ways. We want to show our values both in digital and live form. We are able to do that with these Garage Art Parties.
