Corsica Studios co-founder Amanda Moss has died

The co-founder of the London based independent arts organisation and club space lost her battle to cancer on 3 April

Amanda Moss, artist and co-founder of London's Corsica Studios, has died following a battle with a rare form of ovarian cancer. Diagnosed last year, a GoFundMe campaign had been set up to raise funds to pay for treatment in Germany. An important figure on the London club scene, Amanda dedicated her life to supporting creative arts in the city. The news was announced this morning via the campaign page:

“It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that Amanda's health deteriorated rapidly over the weekend and at 8.30 pm yesterday evening she passed away peacefully.

“Amanda's family and I would like you all to know how much we appreciate the numerous messages of support, donations and fundraising activities that have been offered over the last few months as they really gave her a chance to try the treatments she needed and to face this illness on her own terms. She was incredibly brave but unfortunately some battles are too big and, despite her determination, positivity and will to succeed, this was one that she just couldn't win.

“Amanda was courageous, dignified and beautiful to the end and wanted everyone to know how much your support and generosity meant to her during her illness. She felt very loved by you all and it goes without saying that she will be greatly missed.

“Adrian, Darren, Yvonne and the family.”
