Cafe Art has been exhibiting art by people who have experienced homelessness and selling the MyLondon calendars in Spitalfields Market since 2012. We’re a social enterprise set up to empower people who have been homeless through art, photography and entrepreneurship. If you have ever visited Spitalfields before Christmas, you will have seen us on a table with the MyLondon calendars.
The calendar photos are beautiful – and taken locally on disposable cameras. Because of Covid-19, we can’t risk the health of the project participants selling this year – but we will be selling the “best of” 2021 MyLondon calendar on our website. We’re also selling a 2021 MyWorld calendar and packs of beautiful greeting cards – one has Dogs of the World, and the other is Portraits.
If you are missing your MyLondon vendor, you can still pledge 50% of the price you pay to them! Go to our website shop and use the promo code CAV2021 (we will give you 50p off and £5 to the vendor fund).
