Introducing our Board: Awam Amkpa

Awam got involved with GrowHouse by chance.  

While co-founder Shanna Sabio was traveling to Nigeria to assist with marketing events for Asalaye Academy, a chance meeting at Nike Art Gallery connected two individuals passionate about art and education.

Awam is a professor, curator, dramatist, and documentary filmmaker among other things.

He immediately offered to help with GrowHouse's initiatives to provide access to art and technology for those who normally don't get access.

One of his first acts as GrowHouse Board Member is as GrowHouse Cultural Ambassador to Cuba this August.
