Kim Milfort, new board president
Meet Kim Milfort. We’re thrilled to have her as our new board president and can’t wait for you to meet her. Here’s a little bit more about her.
Kim Milfort is a Haitian American Indy resident who loves and stewards art in all its forms, as well as its practitioners. She values restoration of inherent strength and beauty in both people and spaces, and is committed to participating in the innovation happening in both US andHaitian communities, inviting in those who are interested in converging to practice art and community in healthy ways.
After graduating from Purdue with a Creative Writing degree, she blended her passion with her professional endeavors to let both worlds inform and augment one another. Inspired by a challenge, she has served at many levels from the Executive capacity as CFO for a nationwide telecom engineering firm, to an individual contributor in the tech industry as a Digital Marketing Consultant. Inspired by collaboration, she has dreamed up local events like pop-up galleries and mixed media arts festivals, creating sponsorship structures for local events to partner with Haitian organizations and help them bring solar power to arts and education programs in Jacmel. In the past she has served as the right hand to the Board President of the Radio Club of America and was a CASA with Child Advocates for three years.

Most recently, she served with a Black employee network at the world’s most innovative tech company as part of their Board of Directors where she orchestrated over 1000 volunteer hours for STEM Education in Indianapolis in 2017.
On a Sunday afternoon, she can be found reading at a park, neglecting her blog, listening to a CD she bought outside a gas station, or cooking Sunday dinner with friends and family
