Events at DAC
Do you ever wonder how Denali
Arts Council brings quality arts events to our community? It
starts with you! Our mission is to facilitate interested
artists and organizers in fulfilling their desire to
share their projects and ideas with others. Getting started is
easy. The first step is to contact DAC staff to let us
know what you have in mind. Projects may include
opportunities in any one of our eight progams ranging from
visual, performing and literary arts. Perhaps you are eager to
present a favorite artist or film, embark on curating a
gallery show or test the waters in directing a drama. We can
make this happen as well as any other potential creative
ventures that may be a good fit with DAC's mission.
Interesated parties may inquire at email@example.com.
The DAC board
meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30pm. These
meetings are always open to the public. They are usually
held at the Talkeetna Public Library; listen to KTNA Talkeetna
for location. If you have questions or would like to be
on the agenda,
