Dauphin Island Heritage and Arts Council (DIHAC) is a charitable non-profit organization that strives to create and maintain a network of visual, literary and performing artists and patrons, providing venues for educational arts programs, exhibits, shows and performances, and providing opportunities for the expression, appreciation and participation in the arts. We also provide educational programs to emphasize, celebrate and showcase the heritage and history of South Mobile County.

We recently launched Island of Plenty, a Dauphin Island Native American living history experience. See the trailer and order the full documentary here.

The fifth annual Gulf Seafood Gala was a huge success! Thank you to all who sponsored, donated, and attended.
