Derbyshire Open Arts 2021 ONLINE Campaign

Derbyshire Open Arts 2021 ONLINE Campaign

Dear Artist Members

Due to the current climate associated with the Covid19 pandemic, the DOArts committee have decided to cancel the 2021 Open Studios event. However, we will continue online.

Our aim is to maintain our campaign to promote Derbyshire Open Arts artists and grow our following of art lovers through our website, social media platforms and take advantage of any other opportunities that come our way.

The Campaign will be FREE to all artists who signed up for the 2020 event. But it will also be open to new Derbyshire artists who wish to join us in 2021 for an administration fee of £15.

We would like you to stay with us throughout 2021and help to support each other through a programme of online activities throughout the year to the end of May 2021, which we will invite you all to join. However, if you do not wish to remain on our website or participate over the coming year please let us know.

Our exciting programme for 2021 is still being developed and will include:

  • Videos via our new YouTube channel
  • +online help for artists to produce their own video media content
  • Artist interviews online and on the radio
  • Online networking
  • Encouraging young and emerging artists to get involved

Details of any activities and events will be published on the website and updates will be sent to artists via email and through social media (instagram & facebook)

In the meantime, if you have IT skills or ideas and wish to volunteer with us for this year’s campaign, please get in touch at

Many artists who joined us in 2020 still have a 35% credit. Refunds will be available up to the closing date for entries to our next ‘open studio’ event (hopefully in 2022.)


Best wishes to all for 2021

The DoArts Committee
