Cankarjev dom (CD) and Europe Jazz Network (EJN) hereby issue a call for applications for music projects to be featured at the Slovenia Showcase Festival, taking place on 22 and 23 September 2017 in CD Club within the scope of the European Jazz Conference 2017* (EJC).

Artists applying for this festival must be citizens of the Republic of Slovenia. The international selection panel (EJC Programme Committee) will single out six projects to be included in the two-day programme, and outline the schedule of concerts. Each show/concert will run for 40 minutes and will be included in the conference’s booklet and in the overall promotion of the event. Concerts will be attended by international participants to the Conference, mainly promoters, journalists and other music professionals, and some tickets will also be sold to external audiences.

Applications can be submitted by individual artists/bands, either musicians or their promoters/agents (Slovenian or international). The projects eligible for application can feature Slovenian or international artists, provided that the band leader or project initiator is a citizen of the Republic of Slovenia, which the application must clearly specify. Priority shall be given to projects reflecting jazz creativity and demonstrating international potential, with reference to both the content and form of application. The selection panel shall also take into consideration projects in the making which, however, are not devised as one-off undertakings. The application should include a presentation of the project (in English), contact information, CV, references, photograph, technical rider and three audio and/or video recordings of the project.

Cankarjev dom shall provide a fee of EUR 200 gross per person to performers selected for the Slovenia Showcase Festival. As regards the reimbursement of other costs of performers, special agreements will be available for negotiation depending on and in line with the EJC budget.

* The 4th European Jazz Conference will take place between 21 and 24 September 2017 at the Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The European Jazz Conference 2017 is co-organised by Europe Jazz Network (EJN) and Cankarjev dom, organiser of the Ljubljana Jazz Festival, the oldest jazz festival in Europe, and is supported by the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia, the City of Ljubljana, European Green Capital and UNESCO City of Literature, and by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

The European Jazz Conference is composed of inspiring keynote speeches, high-level discussion groups and workshops, networking sessions for professionals of the creative music sector, cultural visits and, in the evenings, a showcase programme of the best new artists from the host country, this year Slovenia.

The European Jazz Conference is the most important annual meeting of professionals from the creative music sector in Europe, in particular of promoters, presenters, managers and national/regional organisations. The onetime General Assembly of the Europe Jazz Network has since 2014 been open also to other professionals and has evolved into the European Jazz Conference.

The European Jazz Conference is a unique event, the only one of its kind in Europe, centred on building relationships, developing new projects and artistic collaborations, sharing expertise and getting up to date with the latest management and programming trends. Moreover, the Conference foregrounds learning about music scenes and best practices from all around the world, including countries beyond Europe.
