A new membership organisation, JAZZ PROMOTION NETWORK held its inaugural meeting at Colston Hall in Bristol yesterday.The organization has been instigated by Nod Knowles, formerly of the Scottish Arts Council and Bath Festivals. The launch event was very well supported by venues, promoters – both volunteer promoters and the bigger/ more established venues – and other interested parties. Total attendance was 65 people. We’re hearing that the two-and-a-half hour meeting was productive and well-chaired. JPN is at the stage where it is formulating its plan of activity in areas such as.
– Touring and commissioning
– Developing the jazz economy
– Collective audience development
– Partnerships and collaboration
– Advocacy and fundraising
