At the Centre

Durham West Arts Centre is proud to announce our new location and move to the Pickering Potters Studio in the downtown Recreation Complex. This exciting new venture allows DWAC the opportunity to teach, interact and engage the public through dynamic programming. In addition to continuing with the well-established pottery programs, we plan to offer a diverse range of visual arts programming from the studio location.

It will also be the home and office of DWAC, providing us with a central hub from which to continue to build and promote the idea of creating a permanent home for the arts centre here in Pickering.

 

 

Who or What is DWAC?
The Durham West Arts Centre is a 'hub' organization working to establish links with artists, arts groups and arts lovers. We want to meet and talk to the groups and individuals who are willing to help build the infrastructure for a permanent arts centre in Pickering.

Who or What is DWAC Foundation?
Our mandate is to organize, plan, design, fund, contract for, and build a performing and visual arts centre in the western part of the Durham Region, for the benefit of the citizens and arts community in the Durham Region.

The Vision
The arts centre is envisioned to include performing, media, visual arts and multi-purpose spaces serving local and regional audiences and artists, and featuring local, regional, national and international talents.
