Artist Talk: Martin Seeds
Khadija Saye Memorial Fund
Khadija Saye very sadly lost her life in the Grenfell Tower fire in London earlier this month. Some of you might only know of Khadija from this tragic event, but we encourage you to read about the up and coming photographer. She's a real inspiration.
“Khadija was a true artist with a sensitive and generous singular vision, and will be missed by everyone who knew her. We have been inundated with messages of love and support over the last few days.
On behalf of all of us involved in Khadija's Saye's life as an artist, we are setting up this Fund in memory of Khadija, to help others like her to pursue their passion as artists. In due course, we will establish a formal Fund and will make a decision together with those involved in Khadija's journey as an artist, and with professional partners within the cultural sector, about the best way to channel these donations for this cause.
We will keep all donors informed of future developments. Thank you for your support.”
