Meet the Facilitator
Chason Yeboah-Brown is a Ghanaian-Triniadadian Toronto-based textile sculptor, community workshop facilitator, early childhood educator and doula. Having over ten years experience working with youth, families and different communities, Chason’s work stands at the crossroads of art, education, and collective healing. She has had the pleasure of working at the Nia Centre for the Summer Arts Camp program and it has proven to be such a rewarding experience as we touched on not only different art forms but also passed on knowledge from throughout the diaspora.
