Welcome New Board Member Alexandra Kesman!


Pones is excited to welcome a new board member to our Board of Directors: Alexandra Kesman. Alexandra joined us because:

“The work Pones does is exactly what I think art needs to be right now in this world. To use theatre, dance, performance art and collaboration to build community and create change. At it’s heart, Pones is innovation and always finds a new way to do things. My theatre education was anything but traditional, mostly devised and rooted in social justice and change so everything Pones does speaks to me very deeply. I see myself furthering Pones work by providing knowledge on all aspects of running a nonprofit organization, business processes, leadership, and especially with technical software and data management. I have watched Pones grow as an organization since the early years of the Cincinnati Fringe Festival and it has been a joy to see it grow and thrive and I am excited to be a part of furthering their mission.”
