We invite Daniel Kelly, artist/hairdresser to share his experience in setting up and running DKUK, a gender neutral hair salon business with a difference, instead of a mirror visitors look at art while they get their haircut.


Daniel will present recent DKUK projects and how he combines the practical, commercial frameworks of a hairdressing business alongside offering artists a unique environment for showing and developing new work.

Find out about what’s involved in conceiving an art business including the practicalities and challenges. The evening will involve a practical workshop as well as thinking through ideas around business concepts, funding, sustainability and initiating your own start up.

Alongside the Saturday sessions, our Youth Collective Talks and Events Series offers people aged between 15 – 25 years the opportunity to engage and learn about matters surrounding contemporary art and artistic production through a series of workshops, talks, interventions and screenings as a way of expanding professional development opportunities.

DKUK was opened in 2014 by Daniel Kelly who worked at Toni&Guy before training as an artist. He has exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Somerset House, Ancient and Modern, French Rivera, Outpost, Norwich and Matt’s Gallery. His work The ‘Pirates of Carthage’ was performed on Resonance FM, ‘’ was funded by the Elephant Trust. He has work in the Saatchi collection and is currently an associate of Open School East.
