Who you can meet here
Head manager / Consultations / Cooperations

David Severa

I’m a Brno-based designer and patriot and at Kumst I’m in charge of the event program and the creator community. During my studies at the Secondary School of Art and Design in Brno, I established the MNM platform to map and introduce student, alternative, and performative fashion.
Under my Severa Area brand, I’ve been creating micro collections, blurring the borders between fashion and multimedia. I enjoy organizing cultural events in abandoned buildings as well as slow-fashion events and lectures. You may even see me guiding tourists through Brno, as well.
Community manager / Creative vouchers

Barbora Netopilová

I was at the birth of successful local brands in the ZOOT online shop, where I was in charge of production. I deal in business ethics and how it can be applied across various disciplines. At the Ministry of Culture, I worked as a radio and television expert and my task was to push through support for community media.
It was an honour for me to have an opportunity to give lectures of ethics and history at the Czech Technical University in Prague and at Charles University. And it was thanks to my love of literature that I decided to study a PhD program, dealing in the mystics of Dostoyevsky and Nietzsche. For me, KUMST is a place that illustrates how relationships are about creativity. I’m a producer and coordinator at the Creative Vouchers program.
Reception / Rentals of meeting rooms and coworking / Marketing production

Beata Tynklová

Currently on sabbatical leave, back in September. I’m a culture enthusiast who loves Brno. I root for Brno and want it to be varied, pulsating with life, and full of creative people, while remaining authentic and retaining its natural beauty. I’d like to pass this vision on to young generations so they keep positively challenging the city, appreciate it, and take loving care of it.
After studying marketing, economics, and hospitality as well as working for various advertising companies in Brno, I’ve gained a lot of experience. JIC was the first place where I found truly meaningful work, though, as it supports businesses and takes further steps to help develop the South Moravian region, in cooperation with amazing, inventive people. At KUMST, I’m in charge of its front-desk, its rental spaces, marketing production, as well as everyday operation.
Content and Production / Consulting

Tamara Pavlechová

At creative hub KUMST I take care of the content and production of events, curating exhibitions, and the Group consultation program. I´m also consulting individually on cultural projects and creative industry start-ups. KUMST for me is a place where we educate and therefore allow your project to be seen and heard!
In my free time I stay close to creativity. I am into (analogue) photography and tattooing. During my studies in cultural management, I founded with a colleague the gallery Postpost, where we give space to young artists, without being limited by artistic forms. In the past I have participated in fundraising and curating other cultural and creative projects (BAD, MNM), and wrote for Czechdesign.
Reception / Rentals / Production of events

Aneta Tkadlecová

I am very happy to be part of the creative environment that you can feel at every step in KUMST. Most often, you will find me at the reception desk, where together with my colleague Bea, I take care of the running of the reception and our members. If you are as enchanted by KUMST as I am, and would like to host your event here, don't hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to help.
In the past I did an internship at the National Theatre Brno, partly in the drama and partly in the ballet company, and in 2019 I co-organised the Brno Seventeenth Festival, which is organised by Brno university students.
Administration of creative vouchers

Michaela Ihazová

I love all things creative, so it’s no surprise that my journey has brought me back to JIC, where I started my professional career a decade ago. In these ten years, I’ve gained experience in various jobs which quite naturally led me to this creative hub. Café – Front-desk – Events – Administration – Technology Transfer – Innovation – Research and Development for Innovations – Ideas – Inspiration
I’ve worked at a university, a private company as well as a corporation. I graduated with degrees in cartography and geography from Masaryk University, but I haven’t worked in this industry too much, as I made use of my love for geography and maps when traveling all over the world. Now, I work for KUMST where I help organize its Creative Vouchers program and provide services for the creative minds based here.

Lukáš Veselý

I’ve been interested in videogames and working as a game developer for as long as I remember. I’ve created, played, and organized board, card, social, development, roleplay, and cipher games. As a student of psychology and journalism, I started to design videogames and eventually became a project lead and producer.
Having spent several years on paternity leave, I’m now working for KUMST on the concept and practical launch of a game incubator to support new development studios that are just starting out. Another aim is to help create an entire educational as well as community game dev centre in Brno the way KUMST works for creative branches.

Natálie Sodomková

At the creative hub KUMST I work on the Gamebaze project, where I look after the community of game developers, create the agenda for the public and members, and consult on game projects.
Contemporary art, illustration and the medium of play were the focus of my interest during my studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in the Game Media Studio. It was here that the Ghost Studio collective was formed, giving me experience in developing digital and board games. Currently, I am trying to promote the culture around game development through my work, I am involved in the Lektvar student games festival, or the interactive exhibition Compass.
Project development

Zdeňka Hubáček Kujová

I want to help develop Brno as a creative city. You can say that culture is my thing, as I studied Theatre and Cultural Events Management at the Janáček Academy of Arts (JAMU) in Brno and at Fachhochschule in Potsdam, Germany. Together with my partner, I founded GNOMON Production and participated in the establishment of the Brno Film Agency and the JFNF Film Fund.
In the world of theatre, I co-founded Feste Theatre, cooperated with professor Ctibor Turba and with director Dušan D. Pařízek in the Divadlo Komedie theatre. Since my internship at Baumwollspinnerei, Leipzig, I’ve been focusing mainly on creative industries and their development. With help from my colleagues, I conducted a feasibility study for the Brno Creative Centre, and I assisted at the birth of the UPPER creative incubator in Zlín as well as the Prague Creative Centre. And that’s how it all started.
CCI mapping coordinator and guarantor

Blanka Marková

I am a PhD graduate in Political and Cultural Geography at the University of Ostrava, with which I am still connected by an umbilical cord. However, I belong passionately to my home region of South Moravia, where I can be found as a tireless advocate for the positive impacts of CCIs on urban and regional development, but also in the basement or in the vineyard.
I have worked in CCI in a number of different roles - as a consultant, author of strategic documents and professional publications, evaluator of grant applications, conference moderator or festival organiser. My work also extends to the fields of education, tourism and marketing (awarded Marketer of the Year 2015), both in the Czech Republic and abroad. Under the banner of Kumst, I am responsible for mapping CCI in the South Moravian Region and coordinating the development of a strategy to support the audiovisual industry.
CCI mapping administrator

Petra Stránská

I am an executive producer and crisis manager of cultural and educational projects, events and conferences. After years spent at the theatre in Prague, I moved to Mikulov, where as a producer I organized cultural events, I was at the birth of the Brno literary salon Rezidence Café Kaprál, where I take care of the production of literary evenings.
I worked on Brno's candidacy for the title of European Capital of Culture. Under the umbrella of KUMST, I take care of the administration for the mapping of the CCI in the South Moravian Region.
Propagation / Social media

Jana Janoušková

You can read my words on instagram, facebook, on our website and in our newsletter. I take you with me to openings, lectures and workshops and you always know everything first. Apart from KUMST, I work with multimedia architects VISUALOVE and take care of the Prototype festival.
My love for beauty, history, culture, art and fashion is also a part of my aesthetics studies. Aside from nets, I take care of my private botanical garden, my two cats, and love to lose myself in a cup of coffee and the pages of books. I can advise on IG strategy, arrange flowers for a wedding and most of all I love to discover new inspiration on my travels.
