Teacher and Model FreakyHoody and Artist Nneka Jones on The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan

Episode Description

On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with FreakyHoody and Nneka Jones. Primary school teacher, comedian, and model Sylvain Helaine aka FreakyHoody might be the most tattooed man in France. (If he’s not, he will be soon.) He lost his position teaching Kindergarten when one of the children became frightened by his tattoos. We’ll talk with Sylvain about individuality, why body art is so important to him, and why, ultimately, he hopes his ink will help his students grow into more accepting people. https://www.instagram.com/freakyhoody/

We’ll also talk with contemporary Trinbagonian artist Nneka Jones. She creates powerful works of art using nontraditional materials (like condoms or embroidery thread). Nneka’s art sparks conversations about important social issues, like human trafficking and women’s rights. We can’t wait to chat her up! https://www.artyouhungry.com/
