THE UNDERPASS AND ART
MURAL, LIVEART PRIZE, and DTI SCHOLARSHIP"
DTI'S Annual Mural Renovation donation to Waterford covers both sides of the MDOT Underpass and spans over 5,500 square feet. The Mural Project that was painted live during the festival in previous years is now completed in advance of the event for the citizen's of Waterford to enjoy for more warm weather months
To demonstrate the techniques used in painting our annual mural and best continue our tradition to entertain through art, the DTI FEST now has colorful "LiveART Panels" throughout the festival grounds. This helps us to spotlight MORE local and regional artists than years past so Dti can continue our commitment to share this process with patrons LIVE and let those that want to try it out themselves participate as well too! Our handpicked Artists will be featured and competing in our art contest judged by our handpicked professionals and YOU! The best of the best will be commissioned to add THEIR touch to next year's permanent mural.
These select Art Prize winners, DTI members, and LiveArt Prize winners will all have the honor of picking from our nominated kids for College Art Scholarship Funding.

The Highland Underpass and BoardWalk "The HUB" portion of the festival continues North and East up the boardwalk towards Boston Market and turns West, crossing the River, and toward the centralize parking at 5210 Highland Road and then North adjacent to the East side of Dr. Rapp's the Offices.

DARE TO INSPIRE IS NOT JUST ABOUT TECHNOLOGY
(not at all)
IT'S ABOUT PEOPLE ...AND COMMUNITY
THE DARE TO INSPIRE FESTIVAL (yes is innovative) but functions fully on it's own without all the fancy features and has a surprisingly...
"Hometown Fest Feel"
Just about everything you are gonna wanna participate in is completely FREE and without all the lines of those big box corporate events - Because our footprint is nice and spread out (NOT A BOX) ...enough that we aren't right up on top of each other
your phone is just fine right in your pocket too ...We just want you there for to PARTICIPATE. Our event is very organic and anyone of any age, with any budget (or no budget at all) can experience the DTI Fest fully, by just bringing yourself.
This is our gift to you to share with the rest of the Community
- It's about the people -
As local community members and as a Waterford based non-profit Profit, The Dare to Inspire RiverWalk fest would first like to honor Sue Camilerri for her tireless efforts toward re-invigorating the abandoned RiverWalk Project of Waterford that laid dormant for nearly 20 years (now thriving) Sue took a chance on what might have seemed an "unlikely cast" of characters and I think Sue can take much credit for the formation of Dare to Inspire Community Arts Inc 501 3(c) ..if not having the opportunity to work on this (our first project) I think it is safe to say we would not be in existence.
