BLACK LIVES MATTER

This was a self initiated project in response to the Black Lives Matter protests and marches in June 2020.

It is easy to feel helpless in situations that seem so much bigger than you. However, I felt strongly about helping in any way that i could. I channeled my creativity and used my platform to design and sell hand-cut lino prints, donating 100% of the proceeds to charities that support black lives.

In my living room, I hand printed around 30 prints and raised just over £200 which I donated to the BLMUK Charity, the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, Imkaan and BLAM. If you would like to learn more or donate to any of these charities, please see the links below:
