Writer Jillian Macdonald

"I take you to places you might not think about."


Born in Alberta, Canada, Jillian Macdonald left home at age 16 to study ballet in London. She danced in London, Paris, New York, and during all of those years the stage was her home, and the dancers her family. After her dance career Macdonald found herself on the road again as the Company Manager with the world renowned contemporary dance company, La La La Human Steps, touring extensively throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, North and South America, Australia and Asia. In January 1989, Jillian joined the Canada Council Touring Office as Market Development Officer, responsible for the development and management of programs and policies, including training programs designed to strengthen the Canadian marketplace for dance, theatre, music, the multidisciplinary arts and mixed-media. But the desire to return to Europe was never absent and in September 1991 Macdonald crossed the Atlantic once again to join the Dutch National Ballet as leading director for marketing and communications.

Following four years with the National Ballet and years of experience in international arts management, she started her own company ConsulArts International, with communications and networking for the arts the primary focus. Socio-cultural exchange and development have always been a priority for Macdonald and have taken her as a guest teacher/lecturer to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Siberia, Kiev, Prague, Zagreb, Krakow, across South Africa, throughout Holland and North America and then on to Turkey and Central Asia. Yet from her birth place in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, Macdonald continues to seek the outdoors, the unknown, new adventures 4 ever.

"I met Frits Meyst in 1998. The images were there and I quickly decided to break all chains from the work desk, take only the necessary equipment to back-up all data, power all units and flee to the horizons beyond."   From that point on, Macdonald learned how to make bread and cheese from the local women in Turkey, drink vodka with the Kazakh artists and share fermented mare milk with Kyrgyz shepherds. "Let the soul free.  Breath the life around you and share". seeks the unknown, seeks the adventure that takes you to places you "just might not think about".
