Rest In Power Ewan Brown, who went missing yesterday and started our Mayday was sad news. A popular face up in the North East and Newcastle, Ewan was well known for being an lovely guy full of creative spark and a passion for making the world a better place.
From Active Disto;
"Ewan Brown, a wonderfully enthusiastic and caring person has died. He helped out on Active stalls, at the northern warehouse, designed posters and stickers, and always bubbled with ideas.
He made the world a better place, not only by caring, but my making it beautiful. His artwork can be seen on a number of walls around Newcastle - and through them, and the memories we have of him, his spirit lives on."
His auntie Carol said of him;
"Ewan was always trying to put the world to rights and fix our broken society in his utterly unique and innocent way and I thought he’d always be there putting himself in harms way to makes things better - because of course ‘right’ and ‘fair’ often are at odds with norms and rules.
"I just can’t believe we all couldn’t by pure force of will make this a happy ending.
Be kinder and speak out for the underdogs .. be more Ewan x"
Next time you're in Freedom check out his Kropotkin poster and keep his name alive.
Below is some of his art up on a Newcastle wall.
Take a moment out to watch this short piece about Ewan, about his deafness and his music with "Through Deaf Ears - Life of a profoundly born Deaf musician"
