Accumul8: Free Photography Workshops

Get Creative and explore new settings


YMCA Walthamstow has partnered with Accumulate a social enterprise for the last two years. Accumulate is an arts organisation who work with people affected by homelessness to help them improve their lives through creativity.

In 2017 YMCA Walthamstow offered  10 YMCA residents the opportunity to work with Accumulate and Ravensbourne university  to help deliver the photography workshops and assist photography tutor supremo Othello De’Souza Hartley, other amazing  partners on board including The Photographers’ Gallery, Photofusion, The Barbican, and Tate Modern.

We are currently planning for the 2018 workshop where all  participants will have an opportunity to take part in London fashion week events in 2018 and a touring photography exhibition of the work they have created. Private View scheduled to name a few.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Nii Kojo Bortey from YMCA Walthamstow who won a place to attend Ravensbourne University; a one year Access Course Higher Education Diploma in Design & Digital Media.

If you are a young person living at YMCA Walthamstow and you would like more information and would like to take part in this workshop please email:
