ABOUT DWD EVENTS

WHO WE ARE

DWD Events is an independent non profit event organisation based in Bristol.

Founded by Mr. M Slowey in 2019, our purpose is to help artists gain exposure, aid charitable organisations and tackle the big issues in the world.

HOW WE WORK

We support artists by exhibiting and promoting their art, giving them exposure to the public and gallery owners.

All profits from our events are donated to a charity linked with the theme of the event. 

One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.

OUR STORY

The idea behind the formation of DWD Events came from Mark Slowey who has dealt with mental health issues himself. Mark became aware of the affect it has on the people around him like friends, family and associates, and noticed them having the same troubles dealing with these issues. So, he decided to do something about it.

WHY ART?

Mark Slowey is also an independent artist and understands the struggles and challenges that aspiring artists go through in order to expose the incredible works they create. Mark hopes to turn this exhibition into a yearly event and expand across England. Take a look at Mark’s artwork here.

To dance with a demon is to embrace the fear we run from, to combat that which seeks to destroy us, not with anger, but with an art.

OUR GOAL

We hope that DWD Art Exhibition will provide an opportunity to give a greater understanding of the challenges people have with mental health issues and the struggles they go through on a daily basis. We wish to highlight and promote the services that are available for people who need support including family and friends of mental health sufferers.
