    Story

    So we're trying to raise funds to buy Fujifilm Instax WIDE Film for an amazing homeless art project by Accumulate which will result in a stunning piece of art called the 'Quilt of Homelessness'

    The project will be made live at the opening night of the One Festival of Homeless Arts @ Old Diorama Arts Centre on World Homeless Day 10 October 2017

    We've tried to get some sponsorship from Fuji Film as they're product is a major part of the artwork but alas they won't help us out. Hence why I'm now asking my friends and everyone I know if they could possibly help us out by supporting this amazing project.

    Heres some info on what will be achieved from the Accumulate project. so you can see that helping out isn't just gonna be wasted on a pointless piece of artwork. The project has so many more benefits for the guys taking part.

    The Accumulate photography workshops give the young person a valuable and much-needed opportunity to leave the hostel, learn new skills, make friends and explore their creativity. Most importantly, through attending the Accumulate workshops, their self-confidence and sense of personal value increases, which helps them to become more positive and, so, make more positive decisions in their lives and for their future.

    This year, Accumulate will be awarding three scholarships to pay for three of its participants to study on the one year creative and digital media course at Ravensbourne. The scholarships have been sponsored by BOP Consulting, Crep Protect and from the Governor’s Fund at Ravensbourne.

    The scholarships are a life changing experience which transforms the aspirations and hopes of the recipient into a reality. 2016’s Accumulate Scholarship recipient, Sam Adesanya, described the scholarship opportunity as “a dream come true” and said: “This is what I really want to do. I hope winning the scholarship will enable me to go forward and work towards a career in photography, or something else creative.” In 2017 he went on to apply for the BA Animation degree course at Ravensbourne. He has been accepted. None of this journey would have happened without the intervention of Accumulate and the scholarship.

    Accumulate in 2017 is ….. 9 hostels, 23 participants, 15 photography workshops, 10 student helpers, 3 scholarships, 2 tutors & 1 amazing exhibition.

    So Please can you help me make this project happen by supporting the work that Accumulate do and what they WILL achieve.

      Morning everyone, so all in all we've manage to raise a far wack for this photo project. We've also just had some great news from Fujifilm UK and also from a creative PR Agency called wearetheromans.com who have made a really genius donations of films. This means that now we can put this money towards running more workshops and Accumulate projects for even more young adults. Thank you all so much for your support with this campaign and I do hope you all can make it down on World Homeless Day at the Old Diorama Arts Centre 10/10/17 5pm-9pm
