- Panel from 3.30pm to 5.30pm: “Territorial, national and European circulation of independent jazz and improvised music artistic teams”
In a context of adaptation to the consequences of present and past crises, the diffusion of artistic proposals is, more than ever, a crucial issue, for artistic teams as much as for the promoters themselves. What’s more, the difficulty of exporting to a wider area is all the greater for larger ensembles. Independent players in jazz and improvised music have a role to play, each in their own right and in cooperation with others, in responding to this problem. The tools they are inventing are all experiments capable of giving new vitality to the sector.Speakers :
- Fleurine Verloop-Mehldau singer and president of BiMpro (NL)
- Ade Monterreal singer and international project and distribution manager for Clasijazz Big Band (ES)
- Steve Mead director of Manchester Jazz Festival
- Julien Desprez musician with the COAX collective
- Moderation : Isabelle Lazzarini consultant inspector for creation, artistic education and cultural action at the French Ministry of Culture and Communication
