Cafe Art 2016 Kickstarter
The Cafe Art 2016 My London calendar is a social enterprise initiative for London homelessness art groups and individuals who have been affected by homelessness.
In July this year, at St Paul’s Cathedral, 100 FujiFilm single-use cameras were handed out, with the theme My London. Training on how to use the cameras was given by The Royal Photographic Society [The RPS] in June, and again on the day of the handout.
From the eighty cameras returned to us in July, more than 2,500 photos were developed. From these, 20 photos were chosen by the selection panel which included representatives from FujiFilm, Amateur Photographer magazine, The London Photo Festival, Christie’s and Homeless Link.
Since 2012 sales of calendars have raised more than £45,000 for art groups, artists and vendors. This year we want to do it again but, first, we have to print the 2016 calendar and to do that we need your support.
My London is a quality product - a real art calendar, with FSC certified paper and designed for free by top London graphic firm, Carter Wong Design. The contributors to the calendar - the winning photographers - all wrote or edited their own stories.
