Dorset Art Weeks

DAW2020 has been postponed

The Dorset Art Weeks Team are standing down, this is to protect the future of the DAW event.
They will be volunteering time to finalise the postponement process and to bring you the DVA Board of Trustees resolution.
Over the next few months there will be a monthly
DVA E-News.
If you have any creative news or opportunities you would like included please email [email protected] marked E-NEWS in the subject.

DAW is one of the largest Open Studio Events in the country bringing artists and visitors together in ways that are often remarkable and profoundly different from entering a public gallery. As COVID-19 dominates all our lives the DVA Board and DAW team respectfully ask for your continued patience as they find the best way to protect this much loved event.

DAW will remain fundamentally as much about engagement between people as about people and art. Where at almost all 300+ venues the artists, designers or makers will be on-hand to help you engage with the work, even more keen to talk to you about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their practice. And there will now be an opportunity to express artistically how COVID-19 has impacted on all of their lives.

Remember while our doors, venues and events close, we can stay open in other creative ways.
Stay safe, be sociably responsible and together we can look forward to a healthy, strong society and to celebrate with DAW2021.
