The DAC blog is back!

Hello again friends and fellow arts lovers,

DAC would like to express its deepest apologies regarding the lack of updates on this blog in the last couple of years. We have been working on numerous projects in and around the Dorchester area (for your benefit of course) and have added additional members to our board team. Please note that we have officially launched a twitter page account so that we may effectively & efficiently communicate our events, ideas, and projects to you.

You can visit us on on Twitter by clicking the  link below:

There will be lots more news to follow in the coming days as our organization has many events lined up for this spring.  Thank you so much for helping DAC become a presence in our beloved Dorchester neighborhood. Without you and your love for the arts, none of this would be possible…

 

P.S. Stay tuned regarding more news on our new location at 157 Washington st.
