About the event
Looking for platforms and tools to help define, connect and provide structure? Want to define the workforce and audiences? Want community? Let Marty Ashby, Executive Producer of MCG Jazz and Administrator for the Jazz Commons, Michael Ricci, Founder and Publisher of AllAboutJazz.com and Jean Cook, Director of Programs for the Future of Music Coalition show you some tools to help put those pieces in place. The Jazz Commons, a database that pulls together presenter, promoter, artist and audience information in one-stop learning center for jazz, and Money for Musicians, a multi-method research project to assess how musicians' revenue streams are changing in this new music landscape, are examples of what the arts community, both within and outside Jazz, can do when sharing resources.
