Noah Kleiman has an uncanny ability to tap into the educational needs of creative people. Noah's nonprofit career started in 2003 when he launched his first arts-education nonprofit, Old Library Studio, Portland's nonprofit music recording studio for teens. Noah's vision of an afterschool program mixing music and mentorship quickly expanded into public school classrooms and using music-making to engage at risk teens. In 2006 Willamette Week awarded Noah the prestigious Skidmore Prize for the Arts, which recognizes inspiring young nonprofit leaders. With his new arts-education nonprofit, Secret Knowledge, Kleiman aims to help creative working people gain the technical and business skills they need to make their living working as independent artists and to provide engaging cultural experiences for Portland's creative audiences.
