The Dominican Institute for the Arts is a grassroots collaboration of sisters, friars, laity and associates of the Order of Preachers. We are committed to preaching through the arts.
We have overwhelmingly expressed the Dominican nature of DIA in sharing the fruits of contemplation moving the mission of the holy preaching forward with the Order. We are more than a gathering. We are interconnected and supportive of one another. We were aware of ways we have stretched and encouraged each other to try new forms, follow new ideas, and work for justice.
We are painters, musicians, dancers, sculptors, film makers, potters, poets, actors, composers, writers, designers of sacred space, dramatists, any other art form you can imagine, and those who appreciate and support the arts.
