Dear friends of Henrike
The 8th of June is her birthday and we miss her very much. We thank you for the countless lovely and empathic cards, letters, emails, pictures and stories we received from you. We also thank everyone who participated with great performances at the memorial services in Abidjan, Berlin, Munich or Johannesburg and that shared stories from her life with all of us. We would like to preserve so much from what you have told us about her, including ongoing projects, private stories,and adventures you might have shared with her. To keep her memory alive, we have created a website to which YOU can contribute. Share your stories and projects with pictures, videos and text on the website www.grohsinmind.com so that we can all benefit from her vision and energy. It is really easy, just go to the website and post your contributions in German, English or French. Furthermore her family and the Goethe-Institut will plan to initiate a „Henrike Grohs stipend“ for artists in Africa. Over the next 10 years we intend to support different projects or artists for one year respectively. The Goethe-Institut and the famly will donate € 10,000 each annually and a jury will award the stipend. For this purpose, we need your support. Please join us in donating for the stipend. Every small or large donation is welcome. We are now working on the concept for the stipend, therefore please check out grohsinmind.com for further information.
