Cafe Art are a unique initiative showcasing artwork created by people affected by homelessness or those who are socially vulnerable. Their vision is that formerly homeless people will be empowered through their art, actively involved in a social enterprise that helps other people in similar situations by showing their art in cafés, exhibitions and by participating in the annual photography project and calendar.
Café Art frame the artwork of people attending art sessions run by London homeless sector organisations. They then find independent London cafes to show and sell it in, with 80 percent of the proceeds going to the artists and 20% back into the project. Café Art’s mission is to connect people affected by homelessness with the wider community through their art.
