Board of Directors
Rocco Achampong (Chair)
Rocco Achampong is a general practice attorney in Toronto and believer that arts and culture far outlive even the decline or prosperity of societies and it will continue to do so through time. Enhancing that portfolio tells the world that we are here to stay and we will influence the way the world operates even if it’s through art or culture. What we do and what we’re able to maintain culturally here in Toronto is a signal to the rest of the world. That’s what makes us a shining example.
