EJN Europe Jazz Network

 

Europe Jazz Network (EJN) is a Europe-wide association of producers, presenters and supporting organisations who specialise in creative music, contemporary jazz and improvised music created from a distinctly European perspective.

The membership includes 89 organisations (Festivals, clubs and concert venues, independent promoters, national organisations) in 28 countries.

EJN exists to support the identity and diversity of jazz in Europe and broaden awareness of this vital area of music as a cultural and educational force.

EJN's mission is to encourage, promote and support the development of the creative improvised musics of the European scene and to create opportunities for artists, organisers and audiences from the different countries to meet and communicate.

EJN believes that creative music contributes to social and emotional growth and economic prosperity. It is an invaluable channel for the process of inter-cultural dialogue, communication and collaboration. And music is a positive force for harmony and understanding between people from the diversity of cultures inherent in the European family.

EJN aims to:
– advocate for jazz and cultural activity in Europe
– build relationships with local, national & international cultural agencies
– support and encourage creativity
– foster co-operation between members and with others
– collect and share information and knowledge
– invest and build resources
– encourage exchanges of musical programmes and artists
– establish models of good professional practice

EJN members' activities include concert, tour and festival programming and production; commissioning and supporting new music; and a range of educational and audience development initiatives.

EJN's work includes organising an annual General Assembly and other networking meetings, advocacy across Europe, research, provision of information, fundraising and communication – through various media and the EJN website www.europejazz.net

EJN and its work is organised by an unpaid Board of Directors elected by the membership, by members' working groups and by two part-time paid staff.
