Kelly has been a member of Pyramid for many years and has taken part in several groups including the Ribblehead Group, the High Rise Movement Group, the Singing Group and the Members’ Council.
Kelly advocates for better provision of services for people with disabilities in Pyramid and in the wider world. In 2018 she helped create a report for the Arts Council, ‘Can Everybody See This?’, which talked about what venues need to do to improve accessibility for people with disabilities.
Kelly has exhibited at many major galleries and cultural events in Leeds. In 2016 she was part of the project Bringing the Outside In, a multi-artform exploration of the strip of south Leeds between Pyramid HQ in Holbeck and The Tetley in Hunslet. The work was exhibited at The Tetley.
