The 10th-anniversary press conference of the Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) was held at DPAC Theatre. Established on May 13, 2013, DPAC has evolved from a vacant concrete ground to a significant landmark in the town of Damansara.
The 10th anniversary represents a pivotal milestone for any organization, signifying a decade of dedication, progress, and enduring commitment. It offers as an opportunity to reflect on past achievements while envisioning the future.

As DPAC celebrates the 10th anniversary, DPAC aims to further enhance the synergy between the public and cultural domains, creating a more people- centric cultural space in Damansara.
