Event description
A night dedicated to sharing the stories at the heart of the Grenfell. Community is at the heart of what it means to be human.

About this Event

"After losing my sisters family to this fire, I thought Grenfell was a darkness too heavy to face, but it is overshadowed by the light & beauty of its diverse and unified people who carry their legacy on. Their resilience, courage and LOVE has inspired me to shine a light on the courage and humanity of the people behind Grenfell." Feruza Afewerki, a bereaved family member

OUR STORIES - a night dedicated to sharing the stories at the heart of Grenfell.

@goldandashesproject are hosting a fundraiser on the 18th July an open mic for this community to come and share their stories. It‘s these memories, these first-hand accounts, these testimonies, that paint a more complete picture to Grenfell.

But have you told your story?

And have you heard others?

Come hear how Grenfell changed lives and laws. Come listen to the moment when hopelessness gave in to courage. Find out who met as strangers and left as friends.

These are OUR STORIES.

Volunteer @swarzymacaly together with bereaved family member @feruzaafewerki present OUR STORIES a space to listen and share from those affected and those who loved them.

We'll also be fundraising for the @goldandashesproject crowdfund to create a photo book sharing survivor stories and intimate memories of loved ones - stories that will be hosted at our exhibition in time for the 3rd year anniversary. With Gold & Ashes, we hope to refocus the lense on the heart of the matter and retell the true stories of the Grenfell community. All donations raised on the night will go towards the Gold & Ashes Crowdfund. For more info and to make a contribution: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gold-ashes
