One Love is a transformative 3-day multi-media art event that is a celebration of life and our diverse artistic community. The event is designed to give artists a platform to perform, share and leverage their art to the betterment of the community, while raising awareness for the available life-lines within the Northern Virginia community through the use of art; including life-lines for suicide prevention, mental health, and therapeutic artistic practices.

One Love celebrates the gift of life by engaging with organizations within the community such as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) ( and ACTION in Community Through Service (ACTS) (, and creating an atmosphere of hope through artistic expression.
