About Us

DROITWICH ARTS NETWORK (DAN)

Droitwich Arts Network advocates and champions all forms of art in the Droitwich area. This includes visual arts, performing arts, photography, media, written, music and crafts. The network provides opportunities for artists to display or perform their work, and for the public to participate in various projects and events. Members are drawn from a wide area including Redditch, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, and Worcester.

DAN provides opportunities to share ideas, to be involved in Droitwich Spa events, festivals, various projects and activities. We also provide opportunities for artists to exhibit, present, and perform. Members are entitled to their own page on our website, can interact via our Facebook group, and receive a regular Newsletter. Previous major events have included art exhibitions at Hanbury Hall and Droitwich ArtsFest. DAN has managed projects such as the restoration of the Town Ceramic Mural.

We meet once a month, usually in the evenings at the Old Cock Inn in Friar Street, Droitwich. The attendance is not mandatory, but it is great to meet and have a chat with fellow artists. 

Our honorary patron is Tristan Harris, Editor of the Droitwich Standard.

During the government restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to meet at the Old Cock and are holding meetings online.
