Sylvia Gichia started at Kuona Trust in February 2012. Sylvia comes from a business and marketing background with her MBA from the Georgia State University, GA. She also holds a degree in photography from the Washington School of Photography. Sylvia has been working in variety art fields for 9 years locally and internationally, and has now amassed a wide range of skills. She has a passion for the arts and in the recent years, has managed to build good networks and relationships with the local artist community. The Directorship is an opportunity she feels will give her a chance to build a long-term artistic vision for Kuona as well as help raise the level and quality of the local art scene. Her current role at Kuona, directing the current programmes and developing ideas for new activities has given her a good understanding of her new role in the organization.
She brings along a wide range of experience in leadership and management which will be of great value to Kuona. Sylvia’s strong leadership qualities, combined with her organisational and excellent communicative skills provide a strong foundation that will be beneficial to Kuona.
