Youth Arts Educator, Graphic Facilitator
Born in Yarmouth and now living in the North End of Halifax, Bria describes herself as a Queer, Black, Indigenous mixed media visual artist, activist and musician. She works as a graphic facilitator and a youth arts educator, leading workshops across Nova Scotia that encourage the honesty of those participating.
Bria believes in the importance of spaces where racialized and LGBTQ* artists can create together, find support and access to explore their self expression, and mould the platforms that allow their individual voices to be heard. She is working to organize a shared art space to center and amplify these beautiful and crucially important voices that often face erasure, whitewashing, or are outright neglected by our institutions and therefore society.
