Jazz Connective is a collaborative project between different European institutions, born from a thorough observation of the jazz and innovative music sector. Faced by new issues, many artists and organisations are now making a common statement that reflects the new challenges arising within their practices: a lack of promotion, difficulties in defining their careers and their relationship to institutions, and a feeling of remoteness from audiences.
Faced with these questions, we believe that a European approach can contribute to building new strategies to defend and promote this aesthetic. Based on transnational mobility, the Jazz Connective project aims to generate a common reflection on these changes and to promote a culture that is both more inclusive and influential.
Jazz Connective is a project built to strengthen our artistic scenes sustainably. It is made up of promoters and producers, musicians and professionals, and explores these issues on a Europe-wide scale. The project is supported by the European Union as part of Creative Europe (Cooperation Project) and will take place in several stages and in several European cities.
