Jazz North Announces Major Relaunch

New Website, New Branding and Relaunch of Key Programmes 

On Tuesday 31st October, Jazz North launched its new website alongside a major new rebrand. The site will provide clarity and reduce barriers to access. Most importantly, it will present the sector with the Jazz North offer for the coming years. 

Opportunity forms the centre of all that Jazz North delivers and includes artist and promoter support in the shape of New Northern and the flagship Northern Line development programme. 

Jazz North continues to support the northern community through regular online Forums and skills development via digital Workshops, alongside in-person Artist Development Days. 

Jazz North provides a host of sector resources, ranging from funding advice to Certificates of Sponsorship for the promotion of overseas artists. 

Learning & Participation 
Through programmes such as the Playlist Project and the award-winning Jazz Camp for Girls, Jazz North looks to inspire the next generation with the creativity and empowerment inherent to Jazz.

“The new Jazz North design is a reflection of our northern Jazz community - Bold, fluid and creative - A celebration of the very best side of weird. 

“We wanted to use this moment as a reiteration of our mission and celebrate our programmes of Opportunity, Community, Learning & Participation. “At Jazz North we are committed to the development of CommunityThrough Sound”
Chris Bye, CEO of Jazz North.
