After careful consideration and as a result of the official travel ban of the Canadian government for Canadian citizens to European countries, we and our Canadian partners have decided to postpone Canada's participation as a partner country until 2022. This decision also results in the cancellation of the festival events, including the festival opening at Theater Bremen and the gala concert at Die Glocke. The showcase selection of the Canadian Night will be carried over to 2022.
As part of the digital jazzahead! 2021, Canada will have a few surprises in store.
2022Will be the year in which Canada's culture is shown in Bremen. You can look forward to concerts, the big festival opening at Theater Bremen, performances, dance theatre, movie nights and much more in various Bremen venues. At the closing weekend, the GALA CONCERT will conclude the program.
Partner counrtry at the trade fair
The partner country and its jazz scene will be presented at the fair, for example during these opportunities:
Choice of the partner country
Since 2011 jazzahead! presents an annually changing partner country in the scope of the fair, but also within a city-wide cultural program aimed at the public in Bremen & region. The partner country is chosen and invited by jazzahead!
The highest criterion is an exciting, in part still undiscovered jazz scene, which deserves greater international recognition. Another criterion is the culture of the country beyond jazz: in a city-wide cultural festival with regional partners (theaters, bookstores, museums, etc.), the (contemporary) cultural scene of the country is presented.
jazzahead! selects its partner countries, applications are not possible. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to project manager Sybille Kornitschky.
