We make learning more exciting!


DiAE wishes a fond farewell to Nanci Hersh who served 5 years as Executive Director before stepping down in March to devote full-time efforts to her visual art. Thank you for being a shining star for DiAE these past 5 years.  Your work and contributions have made DiAE a strong and impactful organization.  Nanci will join our Board of Directors so we will still have her insight and passion as we move forward.
We are so pleased to announce and welcome A.T. Moffet to step into the role of  DiAE’s new Executive Director.  She begins her duties on July 1, 2022.
A.T. brings to DiAE her experience not only as an educator trained in public policy but her background and talents as a dancer and choreographer. Her policy interests include arts education, arts and aging, and arts and health. Her creative work centers on arts-based research and community engagement. See A.T.’s full bio here.

Please join in welcoming A.T. to our team!
