CEU Center for Arts and Culture hosts the photo exhibition organized by Budapest Bike Maffia in cooperation with Cafe Art. They draw attention to the problem of homelessness through art. The long term aim of their project to empower people on the edge of the society and help their social reintegration.

The challenge was simple: they bought 100 pieces of disposable cameras with the help of FUJIFILM, and asked homeless people to capture Budapest the way they see it.

More than 2000 photos were taken in only one one from which the best 50 pictures were chosen by a professional jury and this makes up the collection exhibited at CEU. Based on a public vote the best 12+1 photos will be printed as a calendar - My Budapest. 2017 and the winner artists will receive 20 000 HUF each and participants will be supported from the income of the sold calendars as well.
