SCS Centar Jadro

Progressive & collective hangout

SCS Centar Jadro is a public institution from the field of culture established on the principle of civic-public partnership for the needs of the community. SCS Centar-Jadro is an inclusive space that nurtures inclusive, democratic, progressive culture through creating programs, affirmation and education, and the development of artistic and socio-cultural practices in collaboration with individuals, formal and informal groups”.

What Makes Their Organization Unique

SCS Centar-Jadro is, first and foremost, a collaborative initiative and the first of its kind in Macedonia. As an institutional model, it follows the example of Pogon in Zagreb, Croatia. It started as a result of the need for an independent arts sector to have a space that will respond to the collective ideas without necessarily being particularly well suited to replace the ‘white-cube’ or the performance for all contemporary forms of creative production (visual art, performance, dance, theatre, to name a few). Ideologically, the institution was envisioned and, ultimately, constituted around the concepts of collective and communal cooperation and action, organically connecting the civil sector, the local government and the citizens.
