ALAN RICKMAN, S.A.F.E. PATRON
The directors, trustees, fellow patrons, and staff of S.A.F.E. would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Rima and Alan’s family. Alan was a founding trustee of S.A.F.E. and remained an active patron till the end. His unwavering support, brilliantly critical eye, generosity, and belief in the work of the S.A.F.E. teams in Kenya was invaluable. Alan’s passion for social justice and the power of the arts to transform lives was unrivalled; when he visited us here in Kenya in 2005 he inspired the young Kenyan actors with his enthusiasm and commitment to the causes that they were battling, and his clear devotion for the use of performance to solve their communities problems. Alan believed that art could change the world. And with his help, S.A.F.E. has been able to transform thousands of lives through theatre, film, and Maasai song and story.
We are missing him already.
