Name: Chaka Chikodzi

Description:

Chaka Chikodzi is a mixed-media sculptor, musician, and public artist. Originally from Zimbabwe, Chaka conceived the Africville Dandaro Centre, dandaro meanining ‘meeting place', as a creative and safe space for youth in the communities of Kingston, Peterborough, and Hamilton. He has also taught in-school programs for school boards across Ontario (Lakefield, Peterborough, Toronto, Oakville) and British Columbia (Vicotria and White Rock) with the focus of multi-cultural interaction and appreciation.

Chaka teaches art workshops in both stone and wire sculpting, where participants receive materials from his native Zimbabwe and learn traditional techniques to foster a cultural connection through their piece. He also teaches marimba to groups of all sizes, emphasizing the accessibility of the instrument for varied complexity with no per-requisite experience necessary.

Chaka can teach participants of all ages and abilities.
