While traveling abroad, Fahamu Pecou's studio was completely decimated by fire.

Fortunately no one was in the building at the time, but YEARS of work, supplies, tools, and fond memories lay in ashes when he finally had a chance to see what was left of the space. 

We are excited to announce that we have started a GoFundMe campaign to help Fahamu rebuild. This GoFundMe is one of the ways we can help to try to restore what was lost and help someone who has helped so many.  He is anxious to resume working on his projects and we are excited for the day we reach our goal and ultimately HIS goal to set up shop in a new studio space!

Fahamu's wife, Jamila Crawford Pecou, is the beneficiary AND co-organizer of this essential campaign...

Please support by DONATING and SHARING with your friends and family.  

Thank you so much for your time, contributions and prayers.

UPDATE FROM FAHAMU PECOU: The last few months have been a dust up... life, work, and calamity coalesced to humble your boy in the most profound ways. But as the dust settles, one thing remains abundantly clear... I’m here and I ain’t going NO WHERE but up.

So now it’s back to the grind. Thanks to the AMAZING team at @metatl I am slinging paint once more... I want to sincerely thank EVERYONE who sent supplies, made donations, offered words of encouragement, and generally GAF! I pray no one has to endure any type of tragedy or loss... but if you must, I hope it reveals to you the beauty of humanity and community like I’ve come to know through this ordeal. Thank you everyone!!! #timetomakethedonuts

Wow. We are only $580 away from reaching halfway in our goal to set the pace for our brother. You all clearly aren't playing any games. Thank you in all the languages under the sun for taking any amount and investing in it something as important as this. I hope that you know that the universe is accurate, and that with the love you have shown you can expect the love back ten fold. Please keep sharing and if you're moved to share some love monetarily please don't hesitate.
