Café Art Australia is a social venture with the mission to connect people affected by homelessness with the wider community through their art.
Café Art Australia provide 100 single use cameras to people affected by homelessness each year, to take photos of their lives. These photos are featured in an exhibition, in which they showcase their work to the general public, and then in a calendar which features the often moving stories and images of those involved.
State Custodians came onto support the project in September 2017, as they saw how it aligns to their core values. Their involvement will enable Café Art Australia to branch out to other Australian locations, most probably Darwin in which there are many stories to be shared by indigenous and people affected by homelessness. They will also enable Café Art Australia to offer an ongoing photography mentoring program.
We are proud to be able to support such a great cause! Visit their website here www.cafeartaustralia.com.
