A to Jazz Talks

A to JazZ has launched a web-based platform for professional discussions and workshops on subjects related to the development of jazz and musical improvisation in Europe and around the world.

A to JazZ TALKS is an initiative aimed at creating an experience and ideas exchange environment and development of partnerships and joint projects between European and Bulgarian cultural operators such as jazz festivals, clubs, concert halls, export offices, promotional organisations, as well as artists, managers and booking agents.

A to JazZ TALKS 2018 will take place from 6th to 7th July.

The first day of the conference will be focused on the topic of European Jazz without Borders whose aim is to meet Bulgarian representatives from this field with the Europe Jazz Network—the largest continental organisation bringing together 124 jazz festivals, clubs, halls and export offices, to create opportunities for exchange of information, practices, models and implementation of joint international projects.

Ladies in Jazz will be the topic in the second day of the conference where representatives of the Bulgarian music scene together with their colleagues from around Europe will have the opportunity to discuss specifics, challanges and advantages of women in art.
