DIGNITY Exhibition and Auction


“The answer to poverty is not simply more income.
The answer is choice and opportunity.  The answer is freedom and dignity.”

- Jacqueline Novogratz, Founder & CEO of Acumen.

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. The DIGNITYevent leverages 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 in an exclusive venue in central London, with drinks and canapés provided.

The DIGNITY Exhibition and Auction will be an evening to remember, featuring the following:

  • Speaker: Sir Timothy Ackroyd, well renowned West End actor, founder of the Tusk Trust and Chairman of the Ackroyd Trust.

  • Silent auction: Top photos from the DIGNITY Photo Competition will be auctioned through the night, together with beautiful images from the Nuru project, an NGO that uses photography for social impact. Celebrate the beautiful images captured by the winners of our inauguralDIGNITY Photo Contest that portray the importance of dignity in our daily existence. Participate in an auction of the best captures to support Acumen’s work in investing in social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas across the developing world.
