Accumul8 at Somerset House

This coming weekend, 24 – 26 June, we will be at The Utopia Fair at Somerset House, Charing Cross, London. The Utopia Fair is a celebration of 25 different projects that have been selected to showcase their work in creating their own Utopia and ideal world, whether through food, fashion, recycling or arts and crafts.

So as Accumul8’s Preserves with a Purpose are made from surplus fruit and are sold to raise money for creative activities for young people living in hostels, we tick quite a few of the Utopia boxes, well, we try our best to!

At the Utopia Fair we will be be selling the good old favourites such as Apple Pie Jam, Pear and Vanilla Jam and Nectarine and Amaretto Jam plus lots of new flavours including Green Coriander Chutney, Aubergine Pickle, Peach, Lemon and Almond Jam and Plum and Brandy Jam. Yum, yum, yum.

The Accumul8 Preserves with a Purpose

Moving Forward exhibition

The Accumul8 “Moving Forward” exhibition will showcase the photographs of 11 amazing young people, who are living in hostels across London, and who took part in this year’s Accumul8 photography workshops.

The exhibition takes place at The Guardian, in Kings Cross, and the private view will be an opportunity to see the striking images, meet the photographers and talk to them about their work and experience of attending the Accumul8 project. This year we have created the Accumul8 Scholarship, sponsored by BOP Consulting, to pay for an Accumul8 participant to study on the one year digital media and photography course at Ravensbourne, the scholarship will be awarded on the night of the private view.
