Octobure Releases #ArtForGaia EP

Incredible to be able to share this EP released by one of Gaia’s closest friends and dedicated to her. Octobure is a singer/songwriter, producer & drag queen based in Dorset.

Dom, Gaia loved you so much and so do we. Thank you for pouring your heart into this music with such courage to give us all something to listen to and feel close to her. She’s so proud of you, she loves you and so do we.

Tracks are available for streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. More coming soon.

“This collection of songs was written about and dedicated to my best friend and sister Gaia who sadly isn’t on this worldly plain with us anymore. I love you and miss you sis – this is for you ❤️  Please please share this with your people, the family are still fighting to get justice and I’m fighting along with them, all in our own ways. I started working on this EP over 6 months ago now and have put my butt, sweat and tears into this tribute.” – Octobure.

#JusticeForGaia on BBC Radio 5 Live

Gaia’s sister Clara and her cousin Marienna speak alongside leading human rights lawyer Harriett Wistrich about Justice for Gaia almost one year on, the Art for Gaia project and how the system is failing survivors.

 

 

#ArtForGaia is live

With the inquest on hold and almost a year having past, we’re launching an art project in Gaia’s memory, which is being followed by BBC News.
Gaia’s cousin Marienna says: “Some things are so big, run so deep, they can only be expressed through art. Our love and our grief for Gaia feels that way. The love we’ve felt from the community felt that way too. We want to honour that, make it visible, maybe do something to show other survivors, families who’s lost someone too soon, that they are not alone. Absolutely all submissions are welcome.”
Gaia’s mum Natasha says: “Gaia’s art and poetry, inspired by the beauty of nature and the strength of femininity, is her way of connecting with her true self. In spite of all she’s been through she is not defined by that.
Our Gaia would want to provide a forum for others to find their voice and create. To imagine that unfolding in her name in any small way makes me so grateful and I see a greater purpose in it.”
