ABOUT OUR WORK
The Delta Arts Alliance is committed to one singular, specific mission, in its most basic measure, to connect.
Every aspect of Delta Arts Alliance’s community work is focused on connecting, whether through its stalwart artist-in-residence program which provides arts education in the public schools, while connecting artist with employment opportunities; or its rapidly growing after-school program that has grown from one program and three classes to five diverse programs with 12 individual offerings coupled with its on-going First Saturday and summer workshops. All total, these sustained efforts and creative programmatic work connect arts education opportunities with over 6,000 children in one calendar year.
Additionally, the Delta Arts Alliance works diligently connecting artists with both exhibition opportunities, whether in its multi-level gallery space at 104 Court Street or through its partnerships with the Bologna Performing Arts Center and Bolivar County Library System, and professional development experiences through its Artist Survival Series, a four-part boot camp aimed at developing a spiring artists business acumen.
DAA continues its renovation and restoration of its space in downtown Cleveland, with the end goal of connecting the Delta to its history and bridging the gap to its future as a multi-purpose facility that the residents will be able to use and develop.
Renovations. Restorations. Arts Education. Artist Development. Exhibitions. Community Partnerships.
The work of the Delta Arts Alliance covers vast ground, but the connective fiber in its work remains this community and its people.
More simply, YOU. You allow us to connect more people, more communities and more lives.
