The Digital Artists Collective is a diverse organization of students and faculty members who actively participate in Berkeley City College’s award-winning Multimedia Arts Program. The club is home to artists who study and create large-format digital prints and photographs.

The mission of DAC is to: (1) support members in learning established and emerging digital technologies toward fine arts production; (2) advance members’ professional development by cultivating and organizing exhibition opportunities, sharing art marketing practices, and disseminating arts-related news; (3) foster a diversity of artistic expression within digital media; (4) stimulate collaboration and teaching opportunities among members; and (5) develop a broader understanding of and appreciation for the new field of digital fine arts.

Representing an arts vanguard focused on new media, DAC promotes respect for a wide array of art and design traditions. Berkeley City College’s Multimedia Arts Program and DAC emphasize the study of digital media and arts marketing. In many cases, DAC members find their source of inspiration in the works of non-digital artists, media, and arts movements.
