Sani has been commissioned by Fun Palaces to respond the Covid crisis and to
Black Lives Matter.
Fun Palaces has never before commissioned artists, not least because they believe everyone is an artist. They want to do still more to encourage greater inclusion in Fun Palaces both as events and across all of our work, they are choosing to commission a group of artists this year.
