Our Cultural Presenters

Owura Amponsah demonstrates the proper wearing of "ntama"

We actively seek out people who are recognized in their specialized fields and create opportunities for them to interact with children.  Over 15 years we’ve built our cultural capital out of this valuable national and international  network.

Ranging from personalities on the world stage to neighborhood artisans, our special guests  are the  individuals and groups who generously share their art, work and time with us.  From botanists and historians to puppeteers and playwrights, they greatly enrich young lives.
