When she was 4 years old, our founder Milica Paranosic discovered interdisciplinary creation and performance, in Belgrade, then Yugoslavia.
She immigrated to New York in 1995 to begin a life as an interdisciplinary artist, composer, producer and educator.
Today, she embraces the opportunity to provide the tools she learned to be useful in enjoying a life as a successful, fulfilled artist and citizen.

As children, we all create art. We sing and dance together, we build sand castles, we make up stories and draw landscapes on the walls of our rooms. Then somehow, life teaches us to become ‘serious’, get a ‘real’ profession and stop ‘plying around’ and the links to our inner artists brake.
At Paracademia, we keep those links alive and awake them if they fall asleep.
Paracademia is committed to nurturing and revitalizing our artistic predispositions through the community efforts and collaborative productions, performances and education.
We particularly support immigrants, women and youth, by providing education, performance and professional opportunities.
