A talk in the Collections gallery.

Come along, ask questions and share ideas with arts organisations from across London for a public marketplace of dialogue unpacking the relationship between collaboration, creativity and success.

Take this opportunity to meet representatives from a variety of arts organisations working within alternative exhibition spaces and underrepresented practice to find out how they use diverse approaches and innovative models to contribute to the success of artists.

Participating organisations include Shape Arts, DKUK, Cubitt and Art Night.

Cubitt Artists is an arts organisation that occupies a key role in the visual arts sector in London, the UK and internationally. Founded in 1991, it operates as a small, yet far-reaching, artists’ cooperative that supports international and local art practice from its headquarters in Islington, London. Cubitt delivers its mission through an artist-led public gallery providing unique development opportunities for curators; a large-scale community programme and the provision of affordable artist studios in central London.

Art Night is London’s largest free contemporary arts festival. Each year the festival partners with a leading cultural institution and curator, focusing on a different area of London to explore its distinctive identity, culture and architecture through various forms of art.

Shape Arts is a disability-led arts organisation which works to improve access to culture for disabled people by providing opportunities for disabled artists, training cultural institutions to be more open to disabled people, and through running participatory arts and development programmes.

Based in Peckham since 2014, DKUK is a salon with a difference. Instead of a mirror, clients look at art while getting their hair cut. DKUK prides itself as a space exploring how we encounter art, increasing accessibility to predominantly non-art audiences. They run a diverse programme that combines exhibitions, off-site events and digital commissions. Opened by artist/hairdresser Daniel Kelly who worked at Toni & Guy before training as an artist, the concept of DKUK emerged when he combined the two separate areas of his life and stumbled on a new way to look at art in the informal environment of a hairdressing salon.
