Diverse Artist Network

Since our last networking meeting, we have been busy building the DAN membership, working strategically with partners and researching possibilities for DAN. We have been communicating with Bristol Old Vic, Arnolfini, Bristol City Council and many other local supporters.

We are also looking to collaborate with other arts organisations and venues in the city to create opportunities and put events on together. If you are interested, want to get more involved with DAN or just want more information, please don’t hesitate and get in touch, we are open to ideas, collaboration and are happy to support you.

DAN has been offered some mentoring from a successful international street performance agency that has been running for over 25 years. The plan is to visit them in July; to gain knowledge and pick their brains, in order for DAN to function effectively and proficiently, especially for the agency development.

If you are not yet a member and would like to be or if you know any organisation or artist that you think would benefit from DAN please get in touch via email to: vandna@tribeofdoris.co.uk

There are lots of benefits in joining the DAN membership from free opportunities & professional development to tickets, prizes, discounts as well as the chance to get involved with DAN events.


Dan Opportunity


We would like to invite you to the next Diverse Artist Network CPD session. The focus will be on Arts Awards, Artsmark and the Arts Council England, (ACE) ‘quality principles’. This is important if you are looking to engage with ACE in any way as you would be expected to understand and, where possible work with these kite-marks and qualifications.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss practical help around ‘co-production’ with children and young people’. Flexibility can be offered in the session depending on your wants and needs. There will also be some helpful tips on marketing your art-form as well as an opportunity to have one-to-ones.

Facilitated by Deshni Pyndiah from RIO Real ideas organisation;

Date: Monday 17th July 10am-2pm

Venue: The Light Room 2nd Floor @ Arnolfini – Bristol
