LOCAL ARTS PROGRAMS AND ARTS EDUCATION
Deck The Chairs works year-round with schools, business and art programs to promote the unique aspects of the DTC design/build creative process. Outreach includes the Tiny Chairs Contest, Deck Your Chair Challenge, and Chair Decorating Workshops. In addition, several months are spent developing JBDTC Event Programming that showcases children’s art, dance and theatre.
Since 2013, the Beaches area has seen a significant increase in visitors who come to experience DTC’s signature event, Jax Beach Deck The Chairs (JBDTC) during the holidays which benefits local businesses during a normally slow time of year.
Many local nonprofit organizations participate in JBDTC including Beaches Go Green, K9s for Warriors, Fur Sisters, Tim Tebow Foundation, and the Volunteer Life Saving Corps of Jacksonville Beach to name a few.
