What is ‘Dorset Arts Together?’

Dorset Arts Together, or DAT, is a cross-sector network that brings together over 80 individuals and organisations from across Dorset. It is an informal group which:

  • Champions arts and culture in Dorset
  • Influences local and national policy in the arts
  • Collaborates on joint projects and work

It is recognised by Arts Council England as a national exemplar for networks and is regulated by the Arts Development Company.
