Kameko Branchaud is an artist, designer, and educator from many places, but mostly Providence, Rhode Island. Inspired by her mixed heritage of Chamorro and French Canadian decent, Kameko's artistic practice interprets local histories, empirical observations, and herself as a specimen of cultural remix. Her pedagogical commitment is to provide quality art and design learning opportunities to young people, believing that both can be positive influences socially, emotionally and educationally on young lives. Kameko earned her MA in Art + Design Education from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2014, and her BS in Art Education from Rhode Island College. She is a certified art educator in the state of Rhode Island. In 2013 she received the Vital Contribution to the Community Award from Rhode Island College, and the AfterZone Champion Award from the Providence After School Alliance (PASA). Kameko is currently a Connected Learning Developer at Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
