The DIA seeks to partner with non-profit organizations in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties to create arts-based programs and services that enrich the quality of life in our region. The DIA welcomes your partnership proposals, click here to tell us more.

DIA Away

DIA Away is a mobile interactive experience that extends the creative experience beyond the walls of the museum to our neighbors in Southeast Michigan. We visit schools and community fairs and festivals, and senior center to inspire creative thinking and problem solving. To request DIA Away, please click here.
