Dorset Art Weeks

Dorset Arts Weeks is produced by Dorset Visual Arts. It is our flagship event and 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 interact with the work, keen to talk to you about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work.

DAW 2018 ran 26 May - 10 June it is a biennial event so won’t run again until 2020, as yet the 2020 dates are undecided and there are likely to be some fundamental changes to the structure of the event.
