How can commissioning new music be better supported?

We believe that commissioning new music from northern jazz artists is both important and essential. Following a sector consultation with 25 artists and artistic directors, a pilot project with Manchester-based composer and improviser Rodrigo Constanzo and research into promoters’ operational capacity, we’ve asked Art of Festivals to conduct a survey on our behalf to help us understand better how commissioning new music can be better supported.

The aim of this work is to help Jazz North and partners, establish a consolidated approach to commissioning new work that can assist the jazz sector in building relevant partnerships and encouraging new thought processes.

Art of Festivals is now inviting artists, promoters and arts managers / creative producers with commissioning experience, to take part in a brief survey.
