Canada 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.
