Making the impossible, possible.


DATMA is graciously supported by many individuals, foundations, and businesses. Without the support from these generous art advocates, none of what we create would be possible. Thanks to the dedication of our business and media community the projects we produce are entirely free and accessible to all.

 “When I first met Roger and Gayle Mandle, I was impressed by their vision to create something that would greatly enhance New Bedford and beyond. But I had concerns. Could DATMA really come to fruition? Would it drain resources from other cultural organizations? I quickly learned that DATMA had forged cooperative working partnerships will all the key arts groups in the city.

Fiber Optic Center was the first business in New Bedford to sign on as a sponsor for Summer Winds 2019. Our company recognizes that the arts contribute enormously to the quality of life for our employees, families, and neighbors, and are a focal point for the economic future of our city. Groups like DATMA give back much more to our city and our lives than they take. They are worthy of our and your support.”
