About the Event
The AT CONNECT program series presents intimate online discussions open to members nationally across chapters. Originally designed to further encourage one-to-one networking amongst its members in DC, CONNECT transitioned to a virtual lunch hour conversation series designed to allow members to ask questions outside their day-to-day areas of expertise.
Klaudia Ofwona Draber is the Executive Director and Curator at KODA—a NYC-based social practice nonprofit, an artist residency for mid-career artists. She’s also the founder of Ofwona Foundation, building schools in Africa. Previously she managed $2-20 million capital investment projects in Africa, governed a $3.2 billion strategic portfolio and managed art CSR projects at UBS, and consulted strategy and technology for the British Council Arts—including writing and implementation of the program management policy and standards for a $50 million global portfolio of Visual Arts, Theater, Music, Dance, Fashion and Design, Film and Creative Economic projects and programs. Klaudia trained and mentored over 100 project managers and executives, in best practices in Project Management. Some of the artists she worked with include Terence Koh, Tahir Carl Karmali, Lina Puerta, Hidemi Takagi, or Kenseth Armstead. She completed MA in Art Business at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art New York, where she returns regularly as a guest speaker, and MSc in Economics at the Warsaw School of Economics, with a focus on the art market. Klaudia serves on the Membership Committee of ArtTable.
