THE DOCUMENTS D’ARTISTES NETWORK (Artist folio archive Network)
THE DOCUMENTS D’ARTISTES (DDA) NETWORK PRESENTS AND SUPPORTS MORE THAN 600 ARTISTS AND THEIR WORKS
The DDA Network unites the existing artist folio archive associations in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Brittany, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Occitania, Réunion and Geneva (Switzerland).
Through literary and film commissions, studio visits, public events, and the forging of professional partnerships, the DDA Network works to elevate regional art scenes to a position of national and international visibility and influence. It also implements initiatives to support artists in the development of their art, and to promote professional collaboration.
The DDA Network is a collaborative and contributory workspace uniting member DDA associations around a charter and the rules of practice. It guarantees the proper usage of the designation “Documents d’artistes” and of the work methods linked to the digital documentation of art developed by its founding members. It is a shared resource maintained and developed by its members and enriched by the distinctive nature of the work done in each region.
The DDA Network was founded on the desire to cooperate, share, and implement a collective approach to regional development. Open to collaboration, we support the blossoming of new, regional DDA structures by working with project leads and professionals.
