This astonishing exhibition showing Budapest through the eyes of the city’s homeless is being staged again on Madách Imre tér. The Budapest Bike Maffia, an organisation which diligently tries to shed light on the lives of the less fortunate, is organising this campaign for the fourth year running, in cooperation with London’s Café Art association. The participants receive single-use cameras thanks to Fujifilm Hungary, so they can share their experiences, and reveal the reality of their lives on the margins of society through images.
Volunteers who agree to participate in this project are either residents of Budapest-based homeless shelters, or live on the streets. A six-member jury choose the 50 images that make it to the exhibition. You can see the images on display for two weeks, until 22 September. Meanwhile, there is a possibility to browse through the photos, and vote on your favourites on Facebook. When the poll is finished, 13 of the best-liked pictures will end up in the MyBudapest 2020 calendar, as well as in postcards and notebooks. These products will be available on the website of Budapest Bike Maffia, and in stores and museum shops from October. All profits go to the homeless creatives on the project.
Open every day all season long, Hello Buda Winterland will be offering special events and dishes wrapped in an Alpine atmosphere.
