We are grateful

2018 was an exciting year for DATMA. Thank you to the many businesses, organizations, foundations, and individuals who have signed on to help launch DATMA and prepare us for our inaugural programming season called, Summer Winds.

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

It’s not clear if Mary Poppins will be attending next year’s kite festival, but so far we’ve got a good list of kite groups who promise to bring their wildly colorful wings, tethers, and anchors to Fort Taber the last Saturday of July in 2019.

New Bedford: “The Windy City?”

Out of the many organizations in the SouthCoast, AHA! brings the entire city together each month to celebrate the arts and culture of New Bedford. AHA! is one well-oiled machine running now for over 20 years. So, when it’s Director, Lee Heald suggested we dedicate next August to DATMA’s programming theme, wind, we blushed with honor.

Classic Duo: Popcorn & Movies

Thanks to “The Z,” the scent of butter is somehow filling my office air. New Bedford’s own, Zeiterion Theater has offered to feature a windy talkie at the 2019 Mayor’s Classic Movie Series. We’re excited to add another Summer Winds collaboration to our list of 2019 events.
