It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the passing of Khadija Saye, a victim of the Grenfell Tower fire. We were lucky enough to work with Khadija and publish her series ‘Eid’ in Issue 3. In the short time we knew her she displayed unparalleled warmth, graciousness and talent. She was a truly incredible woman. Her work is displayed at this year’s Venice Biennale until November, now serving as a memory of Khadija, a promising artist taken too soon. Our heart goes out to Khadija’s family and friends at this truly difficult time, as well as all those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire ❤️

Fund Statement; “Following the devastating news of the death of former intern Khadija Saye and her mother Mary Mendy in the fire at Grenfell Tower on June 14, we are raising money to establish internships to encourage young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue a career in the Arts.
Khadija believed in the power of local community and was passionate about her own heritage. It is our hope that these internships will help transform lives and inspire other young BAME students who will become part of Khadija’s legacy.”
