International Art Exchange

Geraldine Crimmins £120 “A Bridge over t

This is Where I Live' is an exchange of art across cities around the world created by people that have experienced homelessness. Organised by Cafe Art, it all started in 2013 between London and New York and now has six exchange partners.

In 2019 exhibitions were held in Auckland, Berlin, Dar es Salaam, Mumbai, New York and of course London. 

 

This Is Where I Live shows solidarity of our mission to highlight the visual art of people that have been homeless in our cities. We are committed to raising public awareness and recognition of these artists’ work and talent, as well as promoting art as a tool for personal expression, creative growth and positive transformation.  

 

Each of the six cities exhibited 15 pieces of visually exciting artworks that will comprise of a mix of all the cities artists, a true exchange of creativity. 

 

The idea behind it is to have fun, make connections and give these artists an international platform to showcase their artwork. The issue of homelessness is international and by talking about it Cafe Art hopes to draw attention to the issue in a creative way.
