The backbone of the DAC.
DAC was created for artists by artists. 12 artists came together with a dream of empowering a creative community. Since we have grown to expand our programming and have since served over 175 artists. Our purpose is to grow the careers of our artists encouraging them to give back to our charitable initiatives. Our artists can be as involved or uninvolved as they wish. They are welcome to pay for our services or volunteer their time with our Artreach and Sustainability program so they can access our career development, presentation opportunities, and The Warehouse for free. Our model promotes expansion of careers while connecting our artists to the community in an innovative way.
We supply our artists with a foundation to be successful. When we began we thought our purpose was to "pop-up" artists work to help them sell their work. We discovered that isn't our purpose. We do not sell our artists work, instead we empower their career with helpful marketing tools and resources plus career coaching and connecting them with opportunities to showcase their work. As our resources grow, our goal this year is to offer our artists services like digitalizing artwork, professional printing, tool library, and so much more.
A space to call home.
The Warehouse is a 2500 square foot warehouse in West Rehoboth that we have dedicated to our artists. We currently offer studio spaces and a communal creation space. As we grow our resources, we will build this space over time so we can offer a comfortable home for our artists to collaborate and get inspired.
A place to call home.
Brick by brick.
The Warehouse is our space 100% dedicated to our artists. We started with a very blank canvas, and we have slowly been building our creative home over the past year. We currently have 4 studios, one of which is our office. We also have one large communal space we are opening to our artists in June 2019! This is a communal creation space that will be a few couches, some tables, some stools, and all the good vibes to get artists collaborating.
The future is near…
The future is so bright for this space. Our next phase is to drywall, insulate, and build a second floor. Once we do that, we plan to add in a bunch of studios for even more artists to work in a communal environment. We are working to build a comprehensive resource area for our artists to rent tools and supplies, a photography studio and print lab, as well as have a communal meeting and creation space. We can't wait to see this space finished.
