This is Where I Live 2015 – it’s on!

Four cities, four continents, 17 beautiful pieces of art and the talent of a group of international artists. Where can one get this unique opportunity to view all of these under one roof? Well, the world's first international exchange of homeless artworks exhibition is back again! This time, Cafe Art is pleased to welcome artists from Berlin, the art gallery of Europe and the capital of Germany. We linked up with Gitschiner 15 - an organisation that provides cultural and health services for the low-income and homeless in Berlin, which so happens to have a thriving art group too. So if you happen to be near London Bridge station between now and 15th Jan 2016,...
