Café Art support and showcase artwork from individuals who are affected by homelessness or social vulnerability. Their work has been a huge success over the years you can see this through their MyLondon Calendar projects.
After a successful relationship supporting Café Art with free storage space, annual sponsorship of the calendar and purchasing the calendar exhibition over the last 4 years, when we had another opportunity in the form of a commission and professional brief, naturally thought of them.
For this particular project we wanted to display interesting photos of our East London neighbourhood within our rooms, so we worked with Cafe Art and their photography mentoring group run by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) to create the work.
The photographers captured interesting places and moments all within a 20 minute walk of the hotel, and the results were all so amazing that not only will you find a single shot in each room, but you can also view the complete 14 photo collection in our bar. From the 2nd October the Qbic X Cafe Art My East London exhibition will be on show in our lounge.
So whether you’re in the area passing by, fancy a coffee or just a quick chat then pop into Qbic and have a look for yourself.
Opens Monday 2nd | Qbic Hotel, 42 Adler Street, E1 1EE | Closest Station: Aldgate East
