Jazz Festivals & Presenters: What’s Next?
The Romanian Cultural Institute in London has been joining forces with the acclaimed musician Lucian Ban for an immersive exploration of the jazz world in the time of pandemic. The final episode, which will be streamed live on Thursday 28 May from 16.00, concentrates on the future of some of the most significant European jazz events in an unmissable dialogue with Pelin Opcin, EFG London Jazz Festival Director, Nadin Deventer, Artistic Director of JazzFest Berlin, Patricia Jochheim, Jazz Programmer at Opderschmelz Art Centre - Dudelange Luxemburg and Olivier Conan, Director Opera Underground - Opéra de Lyon.
“The artists will try to highlight the challenges and the community’s reaction, on both sides of the Atlantic, during the global crisis. Cancelled tours and concerts, closed halls and clubs, postponed festivals- which are the questions and, moreover the answers of this challenge? How can practitioners and institutions, artists and critics contribute to the new reality and to the idea of hope?” (Lucian Ban)
The conversation can be followed on the Romanian Cultural Institute’s Facebook page.
