Mark Dieler, Latvian-Sicily based German-Italian from Ranco (Italy), has been working internationally since 1998, of which 10+ years spent on the African continent. Involved in numerous projects between hospitality and events he worked with both underground and top-tier artists and locations.
Currently, he collaborates with Tallinn Music Week (stage program for C&k + Africa NOW! and production), Sicily Music Week (international ambassador), In Place of War (residence programs and fundraising initiatives), LONA Musik (booking for Cleveland Watkiss, Mixhell, Napalma and others), Paavli Kulturvabrik Tallinn (summer program and organizational support) and more.
With a strong belief in the power of cooperation, a heartfelt project is Cindy & Kate, a collaborative and trust-based informal network (supported by Nordic Culture Fund) that brings together independent Baltic promoters, cultural spaces, and artists.
Another personal, ongoing project is the development of artistic residencies and in particular the set up of a small residence space in southern Sicily.
