Youth Culture is the theme for Accumulate’s 2019 pop-up display, featuring new work by young Londoners who are affected by homelessness.
Working at the heart of leading cultural spaces including Autograph, the BBC, Somerset House and the Youth Club Archive, the works shared were created in a series of creative workshops that introduced photography, fashion, creative writing and zine making.
The resulting display explores the participants' identity and representation, and their own ideas of youth culture.
For 30 years Autograph has engaged with diverse groups and communities to explore issues of identity, representation, social justice and human rights through photography and film.
At our gallery and in the community, we create welcoming spaces for people to share experiences, make artwork and become inspired by contemporary photographers and our unique archive.

Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
