Experience an evening of champagne, canapes, a speech by Sir Timothy Ackroyd, beautiful photos for exhibition and auction, and stimulating debate around the concept of "Dignity", all for the charity Acumen!
One of our meetup members is involved in the organisation of this brilliant event - see below for more details, or this website link;
Acumen's volunteer-led arm, London+Acumen, is hosting its 3rd annual flagship DIGNITY Exhibition & Auction to highlight the importance of dignity, not dependence, in changing the way the world tackles poverty. DIGNITY does this through leveraging powerful photography to engage the public and generate social change. Join us for an exquisite night out with breathtaking photography, an inspiring crowd from all walks of life, an exclusive venue in central London, amazing artistic performances by Somita Basak, fantastic networking opportunities, and drinks and canapés...
The costs are;
General Ticket: £34.50 (if we get more than 5 keen there may be some reduction...)
Concessions Ticket*: £19.99
* Recipients of Universal or Pension Credit, full-time students and ages 16 and under - evidence required
I know the ticket price may seem a little high, but if you look at it you are getting a great evening of entertainment with some bites and drinks included. A night out in London would normally cost at least the same, plus it is all for a great charity!
The approximate programme for the evening is;
6.30pm Doors open & viewing of photographs
7.00pm Welcome by London+Acumen
7.10pm Speech by Sir Timothy Ackroyd
7.15pm Classical South Indian performance portraying dignity through dance by Somita Basak
7.30pm Silent auction of photographs continues, drinks & canapes and networking
9.00pm Auction winners announced
9.15pm Drinks until late
I hope you will support this fantastic event!
