Jade Lillie is an experienced community cultural development practitioner, arts executive, educator and facilitator. For over a decade, she has been developing her practice and philosophy around the belief that arts and cultural development, underpinned by sound engagement and social justice frameworks, are tools for social and systemic change. She has lived and worked extensively in regional and remote indigenous and non-indigenous communities, both nationally and internationally, primarily in Australia and Thailand.

Jade’s areas of expertise include: arts management, community cultural development, education (alternative and mainstream) and training, facilitation, consultation and engagement, change management, concept and framework development, policy development, strategic and program development and implementation.

Peter Legemann has studied and worked in the computer sciences at the Technical University Berlin – and other specific institutions in Berlin as well –  before he switched his scientific career to the arts.

In 1992 he started the transformation of Schloss Bröllin, a historic monument building in the north of Germany, into a cultural venue and an artist-in-residence place with a focus on performing arts. He has been managing director and head of the board of Schloss Bröllin and has been in charge of strategies, administration, promotion, public relations and finances.

Now as a founding director of the site and a board member, he additionally is conducting projects in the area of residences for the performing arts and promotes the cooperation between related European and Asian networks with a special focus on Eastern Europe.

At present he runs international theatre projects and focuses on teaching at the university. “Projects and Teaching” is an essential part of his current professional life, thus he can always bring recent project experiences into teaching in the field of cultural management.

Art Centers in Visegrad Region as New and Sustainable Incubators for Creative Industries

Context: More and more artists and cultural operators realize that joining forces and resources makes it much easier to succeed. Different kinds of civil initiatives are bringing together artists and nonprofit organizations, gathering them under one roof, creating new art and community centers. These venues are not only creating new communities but they are also offering a wide range of artistic and social events, and also putting their fingerprints on the local urban life, no matter in which part of the city they are situated. Besides their cultural and urban development role, they are creating opportunities for existing organizations and for start-ups too, to concentrate more on their work in inspiring conditions, and to create new workplaces as well.

These art incubators, on long term, can also help to enrich the life of the local communities and make their district more livable. It is also an important factor that the value of these estates, while having a cultural center in their surroundings, is going to be more appreciated.


Why now? In the Visegrad countries more and more art incubators and similar institution were founded since 2005. All these institutions gained enough relevant experience in the field of cultural management, cultural policy and sustainable strategies, and all of them are more or less in the same situation. These centers don`t have yet a stable network in this region, although each and every establishment has a solid base of international partners.

But what? FÜGE, the production company based in Budapest, Hungary, funded Jurányi Art Incubator in 2012 and is looking forward to welcome people with international know-how. For this we are planning to initiate a Visegrad-based international network. The first step will be to organize a meeting/workshop in May 2014 and to launch a website that would gather all the organizations working with these incubator centers and to make each others’ contacts accessible for the partners and other organization. Our plan is not only to exchange best practices and practical knowledge in the region but also to make it easier for all the organizations to search for partners so that they can apply for the Visegrad Fund or any other European/International Fund.


In order to organize the meeting the representatives of FÜGE/Jurányi are planning to visit the partner organization (Fabryka Sztuki – Lodz, Johancentrum – Plzen, KC Dunaj – Bratislava, Paintbrush Factory – Cluj (RO)), during the first trimester of 2014 to gather more information about their work, and to see their needs or suggestions regarding the meeting and the future platform.

Is this new? The aim of the meeting will not only be knowing each other better, but also learning about other perspectives. Füge Production is inviting art professionals, who are dealing with similar art community centers in Western part of Europe or even on other continents.

Invited workshop holders:

Jessica Robinson Love, CounterPulse, San Francisco, US

Christina Molander, SITE, Stockholm, Sweden

Jade Lille, FootscrayArtCenter, Melbourne, Australia

With the help of the invited professionals we are planning to organize an open discussion about different issues, that are important in every cultural center’s life.

Proposed subjects:

Fundraising – not as difficult as it seems (Christina Molander)

Financial sustainability – with the help of the community (Jade Lille)

How to stay dynamical? (Jessica Robinson Love)

Other planned discussion:

Sustainability – not just once a year. A study about sustainable festivals (Beata Seberíniova, KC Dunaj, Bratislava, SK)

The meeting is planned on the 21-24th or 27-31st of May. The final date will be announced soon.
