I like learning things I have never heard about. The guest artists and speakers that come to DAVA make us think of our future and how to be creative in any job we have. We talk about being responsible and never giving up.

EVENTS

Linked

An exhibition of artworks by DAVA Youth centered on the theme of personal and social identity. DAVA students identify with many different social and cultural circles, which are linked together in a very diverse environment. This exhibition showcases how unique our young artists are, exploring nationalities, race, gender, education, abilities, languages, social class, and much more. As students express themselves and share their stories, they discover new connections and develop a sense of belonging.

The exhibition is free and open to the public Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 5 pm, through August 19th.
