In a Changing World, Art & Design must speak through TECHNOLOGY and Technology must converse with ART & DESIGN. DATMA produces dynamic programs that project what the SouthCoast is and has been—and what it can become.

Massachusetts Design Art & Technology Institute (DATMA) was launched in 2016 to bring inspiring public art, design, and technology exhibitions from around the world to the SouthCoast. Help DATMA bring free & public art to the SouthCoast and join our mission in promoting public art and supporting DATMA’s efforts! DATMA is a 501(c)(3), which means we rely on the support of foundations, businesses, and individuals like you!
Invest in the creative economy by financially supporting our public art projects and hands-on education initiatives today.

Help create our next big project!

Because we are an institute without walls, we don’t get to greet you by a door or hear your thoughts about the artwork we present. We want to hear from you!

Tell us a bit about the art that inspires you. What artwork should DATMA present next? Where should art live? These are conversations we wish we could personally have with you. CLICK HERE  to share your comments and ideas with DATMA’s Program Committee.

Your feedback will help shape our future exhibitions.
