The World Jazz Conference, which takes place annually at the Amersfoort Jazz festival will hold its first online edition from Friday the 20th to Saturday the 21st of November between 13:00 – 16:00 CET. More than 100 international music industry professionals from all over the world come together to brainstorm about the current crisis and how collaboration, sharing and exchange can contribute to an initial recovery. The conference will physically take place in two TV studios, one in Amersfoort and one in Johannesburg South Africa. During the conference, foreign festivals can present their special talents and laureates for the Sena Performers International Jazz Laureate Festival.
This year, due to the COVID measures, the conference will take place online. Representatives of the international World Jazz scene come together in a virtual room to exchange experiences and talk about challenges of the future. Participants (who have registered in advance) can participate in the conversation; it may be interesting for World Jazz professionals to attend the conference online.
The key topic is the ‘The World Jazz Festival Network – Impact Survey Report’ about the consequences of the pandemic for the global jazz ecosystem, a study that IKS (South Africa) has conducted worldwide on behalf of Amersfoort Jazz and JazzNL.
