DATMA is a new cultural organization in New Bedford, MA that engages with the diverse populations of our region and beyond through international exhibitions that explore the convergence of design, art and new technologies. DATMA’s Board and staff are dedicated to help end systemic racism by listening to, learning from and engaging with the Black community. We are committed to include more people of color among the artists and designers we present, and on our Board, staff, volunteers and audience.
Black Lives Matter.
Please allow us to share a poem written and read by Iva Brito, an artist, teacher, activist, and DATMA Board Member. The piece is called, “Exhale for Hope.” The poem is from her book titled, Essence, Tones, Whispers and Shouts.
