Dorset Visual Arts is a not for profit organisation and registered charity. DVA has a membership of some 300 artists designers and makers who live and, or practice in Dorset. Some of the Members have national and international reputations. We are currently developing an increasing number of opportunities for artists’ designers and makers working across the spectrum of the visual arts.
We believe DVA should be about activity, interaction, collaboration and, importantly, creative development. Its activities recognise that artists have widely different interests and needs in developing their work and careers, yet are so often left to find their way in isolation, particularly in such a vast county.
In these unprecedented times the role of the artist is being challenged, we hope you find strength and inspiration for yourself and creative ways to communicate your practice with your community and beyond our county borders. Stay safe.
