Janka Krasznai – Team & Development Co-ordinator

Janka is the Team and Development Coordinator of body>data>space since 2011. Being part of a small but very busy team allows her to participate in a wide scale of activities, but focuses on project coordination and financial administration and works shoulder-to-shoulder with Associate Director, Leanne Hammacott. She makes use of her excellent communication and people skills, self-sufficient and creative problem solving and the expert knowledge of a wide variety of application softwares.

Janka contributes to the fundraising effort by researching new opportunities, preparing and editing applications and producing financial and narrative reports for project funders (Arts Council England and EU Culture, among others).

She is also responsible for such project coordination tasks as scheduling, development of standard administrative procedures, serving as a point of contact, office running, overseeing template production and filing.

Janka worked on body>data>space’s three recent European projects – Robots and Avatars, MADE and E-Motional – making use of her experience at European project management and understanding of intercultural diplomacy.

During Hungary’s EU presidency (2010–2011) Janka worked for the Hungarian Cultural Centre in London as visual arts manager and contributed to such prestigious projects as Eyewitness at the Royal Academy of Arts or Robotville at the Science Museum. She relies on her background as philologist and translator of contemporary literature to explore other fields of art.

As a result of participating in a number of European projects, Janka developed an interest in the effect of cultural policy on social change and currently researches the field while learning her fourth language after Hungarian, English and French: German.
