Dalston Den is a Non for profit arts space located in the heart of Dalston in Hackney London. We exist to promote interest and participation in the visual arts, in, and around London and beyond.

Our room for imagination has attracted many practising artists – painters, sculptors, designers, photographers, architects and more recently writers, dancers and musicians, not to mention our private hiring clients.

Dalston is a vibrant and multicultural community and we pride ourselves in working and supporting diverse community of artists working across a range of mediums. We develop and showcase artistic skills through the staging of Exhibitions; we support artists through a varied programme of activities and events; and we seek to promote and inspire interest in the arts by fostering links with schools and other groups in our local community. 

Exhibitions are held throughout the year, and we also run live arts events, spoken word and comedy events, film screenings, and performances showcasing the best local young talents.

If you would like to perform at the Den please contact us.

We are constantly encouraging local artists to work with us so if you have an idea for a creative project or you wish to exhibit your work as an individual or a collective then please contact us for a friendly chat. 

In view of the Covid 19 pandemic and the current lockdown, Dalston Den has cancelled its regular monthly meetings, workshops and life-drawing classes.   We are not sure at this stage when we will be able to reactivate our activities and private bookings however we will be updating our website and social media platforms as and when we get more clarity from the government. In the  meantime we wish you all safe and look forward to working with our artists and supporters again..
