The Tri-District Arts Consortium (Tri-DAC) was formed in 1985 by three schools districts — Lexington 1, Lexington-Richland 5, and Richland 2 — to serve rising 6th through rising 9th grade artistically gifted and talented students. A pilot summer program held at Columbia College in 1986 enrolled 150 students. Since then, Tri-DAC has grown tremendously. Now serving over 450 creative writing, dance, music, theatre and visual art students, Tri-DAC is hosted by the Palmetto Center for the Arts - the Richland District Two Fine Arts Magnet - located on the campus of Richland Northeast High School.
