Jazz after Covid19? Webinar
3:00 PM FRIDAY 8 MAY 2020

At 3pm Friday 8 May you’re invited to join a webinar with a panel of four Europe Jazz Network members talking about how their organisations have had to react and improvise solutions to the Coronavirus pandemic and also project forward with some blue sky thinking about 2021 and beyond.

Steve Mead, Artistic Director Manchester Jazz Festival (mjf), UK
Eva Frost Director Jazz Danmark, Denmark
Nadin Deventer Artistic Director Jazzfest Berlin, Germany
Matti Lappalainen Artistic Director April Jazz Festival, Espoo, Finland

Matti at April Jazz and Steve Mead at mjf both made quick decisions to move their April and May festivals online. Two different solutions to the challenge. Eva at Jazz Danmark reacted immediately to create an innovative artist support scheme baggaardsjazz (backyard) to enable Danish artists to take paid gigs recording performances in their local environement to live stream. Berlin Jazzfest takes place in November putting Nadin and her team in the same situation as many other autumn festivals wondering if they will be able to go ahead.

Recommended for artistic directors, programmers, venues, artists and festival goers.
