Downriver Council for the Arts

Founded in 1978, the Downriver Council for the Arts (DCA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) arts and cultural organization that proudly serves nearly 400,000 residents in 21 Downriver communities. The cities we serve are as follows: Allen Park, Belleville, Brownstown, Ecorse, Flat Rock, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Huron, Lincoln Park, Melvindale, River Rouge, Riverview, Rockwood, Romulus, Southgate, Sumpter Twp, Taylor, Trenton, Van Buren, Woodhaven and Wyandotte. The Downriver Council for the Arts' mission is to enrich the quality of life in the Downriver communities by advocating and promoting the arts and providing opportunities for involvement and participation in arts and cultural activities. We actively support local artists and performers through artistic outreach programs and special promotional opportunities. The DCA operates out of the James R. DeSana Center for Arts and Culture (the Center), a three-story, 20,000 SF historic building located at 81 Chestnut Street in downtown Wyandotte. The Center became the home of the DCA in 2010 through a partnership with the City and the DDA. In late 2016, we are excited to report the City of Wyandotte and DDA extended our lease for a 10-year commitment. We feel this partnership will solidify our place and home as a regional arts and cultural center. We provide opportunities for involvement and participation in the arts through lectures, workshops, adult and youth classes, summer youth art camps, gallery exhibits, theater productions, literary events, music concerts and classes, an artist gift gallery, facility rentals and volunteer opportunities. The DCA also creates regional partnerships with other cultural organizations, schools and service clubs to promote artistic, cultural and special events throughout Southeast Michigan. We hold these activities in our Center and by operating in the various cities we serve.
