WHO WE ARE
The DABICO Initiative was originally started in 2006 in Dayton, Ohio. It is an arts and entertainment development and funding Initiative. The DABICO mission is to help Develop Artist and Build Innovative/Inspirational Community Opportunities in the arts.
Over the past 16 years the DABICO Initiative helped develop and support many artist and art related businesses and organizations. The Initiative goal has been to work with individuals, professionals, local businesses, schools, churches, and community organizations, to form a network that develops and financially supports artists, arts related businesses, the production of marketable content in music, film, television and the web, and the sale of products and services that support the Initiative.
To accomplish our mission and goals, the DABICO Initiative operates two independent Business Models that work interdependently.
Over the past 15 years, CAL worked with prestigious institutions like the Dayton Public Library, private, public and charter schools, Downtown Dayton Partnership Group, Salvation Army Kroc Center, Camp Fire USA Greater Dayton Area Council, YMCA and the After School All Stars.
One change being implemented to better support and expand the DABICO Initiative's arts and entertainment development, funding, and revenue operation is the development of an arts and entertainment facility in the Springfield, Ohio community. The DABICO Initiative is working with East College Professionals to develop a multi-use arts and entertainment developmental facility that will have music, video and film production studios, a performance and production stage, offices and a conference area. Area 51 Studio's, as it will be called shall provide an additional location that work with the community to bolster both in the arts and the commerce of the arts. This facility will compatible with the digital age.
DABICO’s Mission is in its name.
