The MyBudapest 2019 calendar has arrived!
We are not only buying a simply useful item but we also give hope by purchasing the calendar. All photos were made by homeless artists people to present us the city the way that can be done only by them. We support the creators directly with the profit.to let them show their everyday life, their talent and find the way back to society.
Budapest is our home. We have our favourite places: a bench on Margaret Island, the street we cycle every day, or the corner where we use to meet before going out. How those people see the city, who has their home on its streets?
Budapest Bike Maffia in cooperation with Cafe Art (London) proudly announce this initiative for the third time to raise awareness on social problems. Similarly to past years with the help of volunteers and FUJIFILM Magyarország we distributed one-time-use cameras and we asked homeless persons to take photos in Budapest, to show how they see the capital of Hungary. A professional jury chose the best 50 to be exhibited where visitors could vote to their favourite ones. The top 12+1 photos and the stories connected to those are published in the MyBudapest 2019 Calendar. The whole profit of the calendar sales is distributed among the homeless artists. The long term purpose still remains to give chance for these people to show their talent through presenting their everyday life and this way to draw attention to the issue of homelessness, to fade away stereotypes and to narrow the gaps within society.
When buying the calendar you support the creators of the photos. Thanks for that!
