Dorset Art Weeks 2016, 28th May to 12th June 2016

Dorset Arts Weeks is one of the largest Open Studio Events in the country; it brings artists and visitors together in ways that are often remarkable and profoundly different from entering a public gallery. DAW is fundamentally as much about engagement between people as about people and art. At almost all venues the artists, designers or makers will be on-hand to help you engage with the work, keen to talk to you about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work.

The website is just being finished off and will be live from early April it will showcase all the artists that are taking part in DAW 2016. You can search by category or filter your results by area. You can even switch to a map mode, where you can explore a map of Dorset and see what’s happening near you.
