KIDS CAN - new project supported by Creative Europe

JazzDanmark (leading partner), JazzKaar in Estonia and Hot Club in Portugal have come up with the idea to let young jazz talents in Europe tour around in a “jazz caravan” to three different countries each year in between 2018-2021.

The core of the project is to prove that children are as valid performers to play for children as adult musicians. In this way the audience will be listening to their equals which is not seen that often, especially in the ‘children’s jazz’ area. Hereby we hope to inspire the young audience to maybe become musicians themselves by experiencing musicians of their own age.
As a part of the 3-year project there will be development of new young journalists, who will be reporting from the concerts in a more approachable way for the target group. In this way we hope to build a stronger audience in the field of jazz music.

There will be a total of 5 talented musicians from each country in the age group of 9-14 years, and two young journalists between 12 and 17 years old from each country.
