The beloved local arts organization The DAAC (Division Avenue Arts Collective) is reforming under the umbrella of a nonprofit, with renewed vigor, after being forced from its 10-year venue on Division Avenue last August. Mike Wolf, a member of the DAAC’s board, is in studio to explain the organizations new formation and highlight a fundraising campaign focused on securing a new venue for the Collective that has a history of putting on music events open to all ages.
Music in this episode of Catalyst Radio comes from local musician Jes Kramer, who frequently performed at The DAAC before the organization was displaced from its 115 S. Division Avenue location. From the disc Nine, it’s the song “We Will be Warm.”
