DORF is committed to exhibiting socially conscious and community oriented programming.
Hosting and Partnerships with other organizations
DORF partnered with Bat City Review and The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty to present “REMEDY: An Art Show and Fundraiser”, an art show and auction showcasing pieces by artists on Texas’s Death Row. Proceeds from the auction benefitted TCADP.
DORF has also hosted private events and community get togethers.

DORF worked with Volunteer Deputy Registrars during the 2018 midterm election to offer visible, community focused voter registration at our events. Working with Big Medium and our June 2018 artist Angry Cloud + Descnd, DORF brought VDRs and voting artwork to Big Medium’s open studios evening where we got over 80 Texans registered to vote.
We also partnered with Register2Vote.org and their director Jeremy Smith to showcase their platform that allows users to facilitate voter registration without needing to be trained as Voter Deputy Registrars (VDRs).
