What's DAPpening: Dorchester Art Project Rolls Out Virtual Programming

By Sam Potrykus for Boston Compass (#124)

June 21, 2020

Hey Folks! We are closely following the shitstorm of reopening plans our silly governor is rolling out, but we are also consulting with peers to decide what makes the most sense for our community and commitment to cultivating a safe space. Follow us on IG for the latest reopening plans. We may partially open by the end of June and this baby will already be sittin on the newsrack. Until then check out the latest virtual programming from DAP:

DAP VIRTUAL TOURS! Starting this month you can take an exclusive 20 min virtual tour with a staff member of your choice; Scope out the office and pick my brain about nonprofit administration, chill with Emma and peep the hallway murals, visit DJ WhySham & pump jams in the theater or ask Edwin to let you see the firescape. In addition to the 20 minute tour our staff is offering other services such as Portfolio Development, Conquering Your Email Inbox, Embroidery Lessons, Audio Recording Consultation and Brand Development for a variety of times and fees. Visit our withfriends page and pick your player!

As we continue our pursuit of artistic independence for our people in the age of coronavirus, we will be unveiling new developments in the coming weeks and months: Live-Streaming Studio, Dap Work/Shop online store and expanding the DAP Virtual Tours program to offer more services from our community like drum classes, painting instruction and more. Let’s keep these hyperlocal artists paid and you inspired shall we? Oh and don’t sleep on VIRTUAL VERSES - the online blog post and IG live platform for the DAP Open Mic coming soon. See you on the net! <3
