Creative expression has been at the heart of The Kennedy Collective since our inception. By remaining true to the founding mission, we can join together as a collective and do amazing things.

Become a MDAC Artist

The Maggie Daly Arts Cooperative is a Day Support program designed for artists with disabilities who are ready to take the step to full participation in the arts – both independently and collectively – with peer artists, and artists in the community. Candidates should have a strong commitment and interest in art, and a sincere desire to engage in the art-making process.
