BHW - Black Inspirational Artists - Khadija Saye

Still image for this video
We learnt about an inspirational British artist called Khadija Saye who produced a series of photographs with the title 'Dwelling: In this space we breathe' where she explored her British-Gambian identity.

We then created our own music, photos and poems inspired by her photography. Have a look and listen!
