Join us at EFG London Jazz Festival 2018 for a day of discussion and debate focusing on some of the most important topics facing jazz and the music industry at the moment. Working with leading partners and individuals from across the scene, we’ve curated a programme of activity designed to offer people working in music the tools they need to progress in their careers.
Jazz is for everyone
Hear from musicians and key figures from the creative sector who are directly involved in promoting inclusivity of all kinds through their work, and how their strategies and approaches might be applied in jazz and the music industry more widely.
Focusing on health and wellbeing within the music industry, this session will analyse and discuss the current tools and services available that support people working within the sector.
Ways and means: supporting a career in music
This is a chance to network with organisations and professionals willing to share their advice and guidance about a broad range of routes to career progression, including available services and funding streams within the industry.
The jazz line
By examining the future pipeline of jazz, we will look to the current scene and the various ways we can maintain its on-going vitality. The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music will share findings from their Music Commission report and how this influences lifelong learning, as well as further discussion on the relationship between music education and careers in the industry.
In addition to the day’s sessions, JazzWorks will feature showcase performances on the Royal Festival Hall’s Clore Ballroom from the emerging talent studying at a range of conservatoires and music colleges.
We hope that you can make it.
