A NEW CREATIVE DIRECTOR - A NEW TEAM MEMBER - SHERBORNE HOUSE ON-TRACK - A NEW MEMBERSHIP YEAR WITH A REDUCED STANDARD MEMBERSHIP FEE
DVA's Trustees are delighted to welcome Paul Newman as DVA's incoming Creative Director * and pleased to announce an increased role for Izzie. Izzie Jobbins recently joined the DVA team as an intern, initially to produce and expand the scope of E-News. Izzie will now also manage the DVA website and is enthusiastic about establishing a DVA group for young artists. Completing the team, Mandy Rathbone will continue - with great relief - to be our Administrator and Finance Manager.
*Jem and Paul are working through a handover period enabling Paul to fully take on the lead role in January and Jem free to retire. They will write individually in E-News about their respective plans and ambitions.
AND THEN... there's Sherborne House! The whole DVA team are working on and look forward to sharing our developing and ambitious plans for the visual arts at Sherborne House. The building is being amazingly restored - indeed transformed - and is on-track to open in October '23.
MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL - our new Membership Year starts 01 October '22
In acknowledgement of tough times, our Standard Membership Fee is REDUCED to £35 and, assuming continuing membership '23-'24, the discount on entry fees for Dorset Art Weeks is increased. Please read the Join Us page* for full details of the DVA membership offer.
