EJN Statement on the war in Ukraine




The Europe Jazz Network (EJN) strongly condemns the brutal attack on Ukraine and stands in solidarity with its people. According to the values outlined in the EJN Manifesto of 2004, we believe that peaceful dialogue rather than conflict must be the only means to solve disputes.

As a Europe-wide network of 175 music organisations from 34 countries, we invite all our members and communities to support Ukrainian artists and music professionals who will greatly suffer from the devastating effects of this war. We will follow up shortly with some specific ideas on how to support Ukrainian artists and its cultural operators.

*UPDATE: Please find below the link to a list of Ukrainian artists currently living abroad, active in the jazz/creative music scene, with the indication of the countries where they reside. This list was sent to us by the Ukrainian Institute and we encourage you to get in touch with the artists and, when possible, organise support/solidarity events for Ukraine.
