#DAAC50Things – An Interactive Social Media Happening

May 23rd, 2018

To celebrate 50 years of serving our community, the Decatur Area Arts Council invites you to join in the fun of a summer-long series of daily arts activities.  We want you to share your creations and experiences on social media with the hashtag #DAAC50Things. 

From creating a sculpture with your lunch to writing a haiku, we've got a list of 50 things to add low-cost, creative fun to your summer.  We’ll be sharing one activity from this list every day for 50 days beginning Friday, June 1.  You can do any or all of them on the day they are posted or, as the list grows, go back and catch up on some you’ve missed.

Once all 50 activities have been posted and you’ve had a chance to complete them, we will put together a compilation video of many of our favorites to share on social media.

Sound like fun?  Here's how to get involved...

  • Keep sharing...
    Be sure to share what you do online (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) using #DAAC50things, and see what everyone else has done.

By engaging in the arts all around the town this summer, you can help us countdown to our 50th Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 28th, the “DAAC Half-Century Hullabaloo” - http://www.decaturarts.org/event/1370/hullabaloo/.
