MEET OUR TEAM

'No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.'
H.E. Luccock

Robinah Nansubuga
Curating

I am an experienced curator and film set designer in Kampala, Uganda. I am interested in art with story-telling to unite and liberate people. I use art to learn about the challenges of cultural development within the social and cultural communities of chain values – ‘who is who’ and ‘who is accepted where’. I am an advocate for the educational benefits of the arts and the arts’ influence in life choices and life experiences. I am keen on promoting practice-led approaches to art in public spaces, and to inform an ongoing dialogue between different communities. My passion is to operate through experimentation of dynamic facing concepts and spaces, such as ‘exclusion’ and ‘inclusion’, ‘unknowing’ and ‘knowing’.

 

Through our efforts at Satellites of Art, I hope that we will succeed to make art less exclusive, elitist and status-oriented.

Aziza Atta
Partnerships

I am a multi-lingual UK qualified corporate lawyer, an e-commerce entrepreneur, and CEO and founder of Ozoza Lifestyle. With over 25 years experience of working on complex international transactions with international law firms, such as Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Norton Rose Fulbright amongst others, my focus has been predominantly on emerging market projects. My passion for developmental work and the arts has fuelled my participation and founding of various NGOs and organisations, many of which focus on promoting African culture and heritage internationally.  If you want to understand a culture, speak their language, if you want to understand the language of a people beyond literacy, you need to understand their art.

 

I am so thrilled to be part of the Satellites of Art team and support the promotion of West African visual art through this wonderful online platform that will make the work of emerging African artists more accessible to the world. The sort of connections we’re striving to create are much needed in today’s world as a bridge-building mechanism.

Natacha Muziramakenga
Associate Curating

I am a multidisciplinary artist who has worked for the past fifteen years as poet, performer, actress and director. Recently, I started my debut as a curator, starting with the 2017 international exhibition “Great Black Music”, which was an interactive journey through the history of Black music in time and space.

 

Later on, in 2018, I had the opportunity to co-curate “Mumasangano” the first exhibition in Rwanda that gathered artists from several studios under one roof. More recently, in 2019, I had the opportunity to curate the second edition of “Mumasangano” by myself. My professional journey also includes being a cultural project manager and creative director for both advertising agencies and companies seeking to improve team building and internal and external communication. Through Satellites of Art, I hope to build south to south bridges between artists and art enthusiasts.

Luisa de la Concha
Communicatons Advisor

I was born and raised in Mexico City. In 2017, I moved to the UK to study English Literature and Journalism at Cardiff University. Afterwards, I moved to Brighton to study an MA in Photography at Sussex University. Currently, I live and work in London, where I use my communications expertise to help cultural organisations and artistic initiatives thrive. Artistically, as a photographer and writer, I am fascinated by the visual dynamics between geographic space, technology, and memory.

 

Through my advisory role at Satellites of Art, I am developing new partnerships and initiatives which will allow Satellites to implement itself into the art market; fostering values of inclusivity and social impact within the art world. I also truly believe that art can be used as a tool for ideological and emotional expression and reconciliation, so I want Satellites of Art to become a space where we strive to do that.

Sabrina Fares Camp
Business Development

I have two passions in life, art and social activism. Celebrating cultural heritage and diversity, while striving for justice and prosperity worldwide are at the core of my life and career. For 10 years, I worked for the United Nations in external relations and business development roles, focusing on technology for development. An advocate of trade for development, I later founded a social business in Niger promoting Tuareg culture and distributing fine Tuareg jewelry worldwide. Now a certified coach, I have coordinated mentoring and coaching programs for human rights defenders across the globe.

Bringing my passions and areas of expertise together at the service of Satellites of Art’s business development is a dream come true. Also acting as SoA’s focal point for the MENA region, I will take pride in making SoA a leading platform for art from emerging countries while empowering artists and promoting art as a catalyst for social change.

Bojana Janićijević
Web Design

I have been working for over 15 years in a large range of professional fields. From sales to management, marketing to brand management, and graphic design, I have dabbled in various work areas. All of that brought me to the point of starting working as a freelancer on various projects that I found interesting and motivational.

 

I have always been passionate about travelling, meeting different cultures and after one life-changing experience where I worked as a volunteer for children in need in Cambodia, I am always looking for projects where my work can help in achieving a higher goal. Satellites Of Art is definitely that. Project with a mission. Beautiful team. Loving energy. Making the world a better place.

I share Satellites of Art’s mission and values, so I’m very glad to be part of this wonderful team, hoping my experience, creativity and passion could be useful and collaborating to promote diversity and that more voices are heard through art.

Sakhi Sobti
Communications and Community Building

I was born in India, then moved to Switzerland, where I studied Political Science and Visual Communications for my Bachelor’s with the goal of communicating political awareness through modes of art. I then attained a Master’s in Responsible Art Management.

 

I usually engage with the artworks at Satellites of Art and use it to curate literary exhibitions, which you can see on the website’s Press and Social Media. In addition, I also assist with artist management for the collective, enhancing the community outreach programs. Through this company, I am living my dream job role, in addition to professionally growing with an empowering team. Satellites of Art allowed me to create my own network in India and support art and artists that resonate with my intellectual tastes and consequently nourish the foundation for my personal career trajectory.

I love what I do and I’m determined to use my skills to help build a better world in any way I can. I believe culture and art are powerful tools that can educate, conscientize and awaken our empathy. Furthermore, I truly believe that when people join forces towards the same mission a lot of great things can happen. I love being part of this team and excited about what we’ll achieve together.

Yasmina Zamora Salas
Peru Events and Markets

I was born in Peru, I am an architect who has worked for 10 years in the field of apartment design and construction. Passionate about architecture, culture, art and travel, in 2019 I made a trip to Korea, which changed my life and I decided to take a turn in my professional development. To enjoy how culture and art can be an important factor for human development, to understand that art not only changes people’s lives, but also transforms communities and can even exponentially influence the development of a country. It changed my perception completely.

 

With my country, Peru, I wish to foster artistic expressions for change, locally and globally. In Satellites of Art I have found the perfect ally to close those gaps and connect the art of emerging countries with the whole world.

Katrin Imhof
Founder and CEO

The work with Satellites of Art, connecting with and promoting so many amazing talented artists, inspires me every day from anew.

 

I am a neuroscientist with many years of experience in sustainable international development, cooperation with the UN, and local organizations and people in various countries around the globe.

 

I am fascinated about distinct cultures, lifestyles and skills that make the world more diverse, peaceful and healthy. When I was travelling, I filled my boxes with amazing inspirations and memories. Now, I want to unlock connections with all these skilful artists, all over the world, and enable art lovers and collectors to dive in worldly colours, shapes, and senses.

 

I believe that diversity and courage for social change expressed through art makes our aspirations for a more equal and fairer world more meaningful, colourful, creative and effective.

Katrin Eltohami
Founder

For the last 15 years I have been working for the UN and NGOs, focusing on the support of countries prone to conflict and insecurity. I saw first-hand how art is one of the crucial means through which people speak out when their civic space is curtailed or under threat. Art becomes activism, and vice versa.

 

With Satellites of Art, I wanted to create a transnational platform that connects artists, activists and art enthusiasts that care for a fair and sustainable global community. For me, it is this kind of exchange among people who share one passion – art – that builds awareness and commitment to jointly strive for positive social change.

Nicole Matt
Co-Founder

For the last 10 years, I have run a philanthropic foundation that supports projects internationally in the arts. I am impressed by the power of the arts for social change, but also concerned about the existing inequality of access for promising talents to the world market.

 

For Satellites of Art, I help with coordination, I explore parts of the Latin American market and I am responsible for our sponsorship and further development.
