DROITWICH ARTS NETWORK (DAN)
Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) is a “not for profit” organisation and 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, Droitwich ArtsFest (2017 and 2018), and The Hub in St Andrews Square during 2021.
Currently, members display their work in Park’s Café, the Button Tree café, Cobett Medical Centre, and Droitwich Library. DAN has managed projects such as the restoration of the Town Ceramic Mural. We meet once a month at various venues. Attendance is not mandatory, but it is great to meet and have a chat with fellow artists. Some meetings are held online via Zoom.
DAN is managed by a Committee elected at the Annual General Meeting.
Our honorary patron is Tristan Harris, Editor of the Droitwich Standard.
