MyLondon is a collaboration between King’s College London and Café Art exhibiting photographs and exhibitions curated by people affected by homelessness.
According to a recent government study, rough sleeping has gone up by 37 per cent in London since 2010.
This collaboration aims to raise awareness about homelessness and advocate for solutions to the homelessness crisis.
The student curators of the 2017 exhibition used the experience to develop interpretations that explore the various ways photography, the urban environment and law might be able to aid our understanding of homelessness and the issue’s visibility.
The School’s Vice Dean for Students, Culture and Community, Professor Elaine Player said that the project ‘Reflected our enthusiasm and commitment to King’s 2029 vision to make the world a better place, not only through our research and teaching but through our extracurricular programmes that reach out to our local communities.
’Martin Wagner, a first year LLB student, who worked on the exhibition’s curation emphasised how this project engaged the study of law in a broader social sense.
