Mara Nedelcu is a cultural manager currently based between Brussels and Düsseldorf. Having an education in both economics and arts administration in Bucharest and Berlin, she navigates between disciplines and challenges existing structures. Over the past 10 years she has collaborated with independent artists, curators and institutions as a producer, communication officer, administrator, project or company manager.

Embracing the change, Mara strongly supports communities of practice from different perspectives such as an active member of the German producers’ network or as a production manager of the Tanzrecherche NRW, awarded by NRW KULTURsekretariat. With a focus on the links which connect different realms, she coordinates artistic projects involving international co-operation with partners from Westers and Eastern European regions as well as East Asia, encounters between human and machine and physical-digital artistic experiments.
