of Keon and Keith
We offer up 202WE in honour of two of our brothers who are no longer with us in body but who we know are here with us in spirit, walking with us as we move forward into our future.
To Keon, who took his background and training in engineering and applied it to his passion and love of costume design. He, who took a leap of faith, pursued his dreams, catching them and transforming them into costumes he offered up every year to his tribe. He who shared his thoughts and ideas freely with others so that everyone could create the best version of their art. We offer up each costume, every yard of cloth, fringe, sequin and gem for Keon.
And to Keith, who was simply just always there. A pillar in our committee, always ready to give his time and energy to ensure we were able to celebrate and experience joy to the fullest whenever we came together. Keith’s was the first name called, the first number dialled. His smile will be missed. His warmth and kindness will be missed. For Keith, we offer up that joy and that love for people we meet in the mas camp, at distribution, and on the road.
