who we are
dion & davita
With brother and sister, Dion & Davita Galloway, at the helm as Co-Founders and Owners, DUPP&SWAT is focused on providing a safe and expressive platform, access to resources, rigorous programming and meaningful events, as well as social growth opportunities for Black innovators and makers. Dion, a product of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical University, and Davita, a graduate of the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, have sustained an ongoing dialogue with Charlotte’s creative community since their inception in 2010. Now, they are ready to push the gas and step outside of Charlotte with their platform and promise.
Determined as ever to push the multidisciplinary narrative of the Black community, Dion & Davita have, successfully, married art and entrepreneurship through real life application of talent, interest and skill for the culture. Purposeful in sharing the value of Black artists and creatives, DUPP&SWAT strives to make each connection and experience inventive, inspiring, and memorably dope AF.
