East Norway Jazz Centre (ENJC) is the regional centre for jazz music in Eastern Norway, geographically covering the counties of Oslo, Akershus, Hedmark, Oppland, Buskerud, Vestfold and Østfold. ENJC include a number of 30 jazz clubs, 60 big bands, 5 festivals and more than 300 professional musicians as active members within the region.

Our main activities are focused on coordinating and initializing jazz activity within the region, as well as working politically to improve general working and operating conditions for our members. Though our main interest lies within stimulating organisers and others to increase the jazz activity on a local scale, ENJC also initialize and run projects and activities such as Ensemble Denada, Big Band Summer School, Youth Big Bands/Jazz Ensembles, projects for children- and youth choirs. A large portion of ENJCs work during the last eight years has consisted of initializing and developing a regional centre for sharing know-how and best practices in the music business.
