Kameko Branchaud is an artist and educator from many places, but mostly Providence, Rhode Island. Through her work in museum programming and creative youth development, Kameko strives to build bridges into the arts for those who are underrepresented in the field. In 2014 she earned her M.A. in Art + Design Education from Rhode Island School of Design, with a focus on community-based arts. Her mural “So Pretty it Hurts” won first place in the juried mural competition of 20 local artists in the 2017 Punto Urban Art Museum in Salem, MA. In 2017 she was awarded an Appreciation Award from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salem, and in 2013 she received the Vital Contribution to the Community Award from Rhode Island College as well as the AfterZone Champion Award from the Providence After School Alliance (PASA). Kameko's artwork can be found under her studio name Atelier Fu'una.
