There are many ways people can support DAA and we always offer something in return…

1)  Join a workshop  - our photo and film workshops are very affordable and half of the fees support the artist, with the remaining half reinvested into our programs.

2)  Buy a print from one of our exhibitions, or choose from the many matted prints for sale at the center.

3)  Become a member – both paid and unpaid memberships help us.

4)  Give in-kind gifts to our artist in residence program – such as meal or drinks vouchers.

5)  Donate a portion of your tax money to DAA.  You can write it off your taxes so it costs you nothing!

6)  Donate a print for our annual silent auction.

7 )  Give DAA something from our center wish list or a book from our library wish list.

8 )  Support our crowd-funding projects

9 ) Donate online – DAA keeps its overheads low so that every penny, baht & yen goes to useful projects.
