Meet ISPA's 2017 Sweden Fellowship Program participant Henrik Lillsjö!
Project manager, Noo Jazz
I´m currently running two companies, Noo Jazz and Kiyou Management, and work on a freelance basis mainly as producer or project manager. Noo Jazz focuses on project management of artist residencies, producing new productions, concept development, artist programming and tours with international artists. The clients are mostly institutions.
Kiyou Management works with artist management to develop international career platforms, artistic development and international musical exchange projects to bring musicians and artists together from around the world.
Most projects have an international and multicultural profile and have also involved the issue of artistic freedom of expression. The projects spans over many genres and styles.
What drives the work is to combine artistic excellence and strong unique stories from around the world.Before this I held positions as production manager and managing director at Vara Concert Hall for about five very exciting years, where I had the opportunity to lead the concert hall through times of change and great
What inspires me on a personal level are strong visions, the curiosity to explore and a genuine passion for the performing arts. Throughout my career I've worked in cultural non-profit grassroots organisations, in the freelance commercial market and in the world of cultural institutions.
As an arts leader I want to build platforms and projects that combines artistic excellence with sustainable business models and a social agenda.
My educational platform is a mix of studies in media and communication, arts management and transformational leadership.
