Dorchester Art Project is an artist-run space in Dorchester MA, Boston’s largest neighborhood. Housing fourteen artists’ studios, a gallery, and a performance space, DAP supports innovative artistic practice outside of the city’s academic institutions and commercial galleries. By providing an alternative space for critically engaged, experimental and emerging artists across disciplines, we seek to foster new connections across Boston’s diverse art communities.

Both our gallery and performance space are available for rentals, including photo and film shoots, rehearsals, performances, classes, and private events. Email for more info on the space, rates, or to schedule a walk-through.
