Dauphin Island Heritage and Arts Council (DIHAC) is a federal 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization on Dauphin Island, Alabama with a vision to emphasize, celebrate and showcase Dauphin Island's and South Mobile County's rich history, heritage and artistic talent.​


Our mission is 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, and to provide venues for educational programs related to the heritage and history of the Gulf Coast and opportunities to emphasize, celebrate and showcase such heritage and history.

If you are an Artist and would like to join our gallery, or you would like to volunteer with the gallery (you don't have to be an artist), we would love to talk to you about joining.  Please contact us so that we can provide more information  and answer any questions you may have.  

The first Dauphin Island Native American Festival, held at the historic Fort Gaines on Dauphin island, was a huge success!  See photos on our Gallery & Event Photos page.  


Stay tuned to see what we come up with for our next big event!
