Volunteers are vital to the success of the many art programs and events at Downtown Art Place.
Volunteering is a great way to meet other members of the art community and to enhance your cultural life. The following are just a few of the ways to get involved as a DAP volunteer.
The DAP is supported in part by awards from the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS and the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS.
