In 2023, Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) supported a series of workshops delivered by Accumulate Art School for the Homeless, as part of an ongoing partnership. Hosted at Autograph ABP in London, the workshops facilitated groups to storyboard, produce and edit new short films, which ranged from documentary portraits of London to stories about loneliness, illness and hope.

The FLAMIN-supported sessions were organised as part of a series of creative workshops organised around the theme of ‘Wonderland’, including ceramics, visual art, fashion and photography. Work produced during Accumulate workshops were exhibited in London in July 2023, where a number of participants received fully-funded scholarships to higher education courses in Fine Art, Design and Digital Media and Fashion at either Ravensbourne University or Morley College.
