Europe Jazz Network organiseert tweede reeks webinars

Het Europe Jazz Network kondigt een nieuwe reeks gratis webinars aan. De organisatie pikt voor de onderwerpen vanzelfsprekend in op de huidige coronacrisis, maar wil ook verder kijken naar andere uitdagingen, zoals gender balance, sociale inclusie, translationele mobiliteit, ecologie & duurzaamheid.



Deze zes sessies kan je live volgen op hun socialmediakanalen: Facebook en YouTube. Registreren is niet nodig. Ook achteraf zullen ze nog even publiek beschikbaar blijven voor zij die de sessies gemist hebben. Alle webinars zullen telkens plaatsvinden op dinsdag om 16u30, dit nog tot het einde van het jaar. 

Hieronder vind je het volledige programma (EN). De ontbrekende sprekers worden heel binnenkort bekendgemaakt op hun website:

1. My Way (24/11): Why are there very few women in jazz journalism? How can this be improved?

While there are increasing numbers of women performing on stage at concerts and working as programmers, agents and managers in jazz, one does not need to do exhaustive research to recognise that there are very few women working in jazz journalism. What are the causes of the current limited presence, what does it produce in terms of musical coverage, and how could this be improved?

  • Anne Yven (Citizen Jazz, FR)

  • Sarah Chaksad (artist / Jazzcampus Club, CH)

  • Mery Zimny (RadioJAZZ.FM, PL)

  • Andreas Felber (ORF/Radio Ö1, AT)

  • Moderator: Fiona Talkington (BBC Radio, UK)

2. Day In, Day Out (01/12): How can we develop a new Green Rider to organise concerts and tours more sustainably?

Think globally, act locally – a motto that is as relevant for jazz as it is for the environment. We need to lead on a “new green deal” for the creative music sector, so developing a Green Rider for artists, managers and promoters will be a practical tool to implement environmental sustainability when mobility will be possible again.

  • Bugge Wesseltoft (artist, NO)

  • Chiara Badiali (Julie’s Bicycle, UK)

  • Jakob Flarer (Saudades Agency, AT)

  • Christos Carras (Onassis Cultural Centre, GR)

  • Moderator: Wim Wabbes (Handelsbeurs / EJN President, BE)

3. Unity Village (08/12): What can we do to re-build communities through music during and after covid-19?

More than ever, WE INSIST! that social inclusion through music is a positive force for communities world-wide. How can we re-build communities during and after covid-19 through jazz and creative music?

4. Hot House (15/12): How can we build new commissioning and residency models to support the creative development of artists?

Move slower, go deeper… covid-19 is changing the way artists and programmers approach touring and collaborative music making. Commissioning new works and participating in residencies are ways to continue to work while travelling less and also facilitate a deeper connection with other musicians, programmers and audiences. This session will discuss how we can build new models and processes to support the creative development of artists.

5. Fly Me To The Moon (22/12): What will change for the international mobility of artists after covid-19?

Transnational mobility has been severely curtailed in 2020 due to covid-19. When we are again able to travel and gather in large numbers, what will change and how can we build new models for international touring and exchanges?

6. You’ve Changed (29/12): What has worked well and what is the future for online/hybrid festivals and events?

The 2020 digital pivot has led to the emergence of hybrid festivals and events - part online, sometimes pre-recorded, and (wherever possible) part live. Now that we’ve made the switch and have embraced digital technology as never before, what are the models that have worked well, and what is the future for this hybrid form in a sector where experiencing live music is paramount?
