Through fundraisers and partnerships with like-minded organizations the Division Avenue Arts Collective is encouraging interest in the local art scene while contemplating future steps.

Since being ousted from their location on South Division last July, the Division Avenue Arts Collective (DAAC) has been in a state of flux. Now after partnering with art nonprofit organization Fractured Atlas and Do-It-Together Grand Rapids (DIT GR) and raising over $10,000 through a RocketHub campaign, the collective is looking to the future while continuing to raise funds. In this video, DAAC board members John Hanson, Marlee Grace Hanson and Mike Wolf talk about the future and why they believe the DAAC is essential to Grand Rapids.
