Diaspora Arts Connection (DAC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that aims to foster deeper understanding and lasting connections among diverse cultural and ethnic groups within the San Francisco Bay Area. DAC organizes cultural and artistic events, as well as empowers artists by offering them a platform for artistic expression. DAC helps to introduce new artists to local and international audiences; to develop and improve audience appreciation of the arts in its constituent communities through conducting lectures, screenings, readings, and workshops; to produce events that foster deeper understanding of different diasporic cultures within our communities; and to support artists from different parts of the world and cultures as they collaborate and produce valuable artistic presentations.
