Community Efforts

DORK has worked with community center, The Neighborhood House, from the Summer of 2015 to the Summer of 2016, teaching fundamental screen-printing techniques, pinhole photography, traditional still life drawing, painting, and the basics in logo design. 

We have recently branched out into owning and running a tattoo parlor on 423 West Chestnut Street in Louisville, KY.  This current location has tons of potential and space, which we would love to utilize as a holistic venue for educational courses in art, music performances, art shows, and permanent body art.  We see a strong connection between these mediums, and would like to offer them to the local community, as a way of further enriching the surrounding area.

Goals

We have enormous goals for a small business, just starting out.  But we refuse to let that slow us down from accomplishing the following tasks:

  • Art educational courses for those interested in art in downtown Louisville and the west end
  • Tattoo apprenticeships teaching proficiency and cleanliness in the art of applying permanent body art.  Available to those who otherwise don't have the ability to learn locally, or do not feel comfortable learning in the shops here in Louisville.  We are not teaching mediocracy or producing illegal tattoo artists.  This apprenticeship is to be taken seriously.

Feel free to send us an email at ontact@dork.space o participate in the growth, or to ask any questions.
