Dejan is the artistic director of Etnofest world music and Jazziré experimental and exploratory music festivals in Serbia. Known for for their sharp programming edge, the mentioned festivals are the place where the roots meet contemporary improvisation, where roots music comes up as a revelation in today’s overwhelming attack of popular “one-day-miracle” music, and where the experimental fusions present the future roots.
Dejan holds an MA in marketing, with special interest in integrated marketing communications for cultural events. He is involved in several transnational cultural cooperation projects for many years, where the most recent is the “2020 Troubadours” project implemented in the roam of the Creative Europe programme. This project deals with travelling world music artists, staging them all around Europe, giving them a chance to break boundaries. And if that would not be enough, let’s say that Dejan is currently working as a program manager for the Interreg IPA CBC Hungary-Serbia programme as well.
