Over its history, the DWW has curated an incredible cadre of distinguished artists to speak at our annual showcase and engage with our participants. Our faculty and professional mentors are working artists with year of experience between them. Because of this, the precise make-up of our faculty and mentorship team changes each year. Here is a partial list of the people who've guided our DWW participants in recent years.
