Future of Music Coalition and Jazz Forward Coalition host informal roundtable in Washington DC on October 28th

SOURCE: Published: 2013-09-18
This is a save the date to join Future of Music Coalition and Jazz Forward Coalition next month in Washington DC for an informal roundtable on the future of jazz advocacy. Hosted by FMC and facilitated by JFC, this is a brown bag lunch bringing together artists, educators, presenters, promoters, advocates, managers, funders, and policymakers to speak frankly about ways to build greater collaborative engagement.

A dichotomy is at play for jazz; it’s a cultural and economic driver in the community, yet we know jazz musicians are often underpaid and certainly under resourced in many ways. Given jazz’s unique value proposition as a declared national treasure, how do we go from a hidden treasure to a treasure trove? An important goal is to become a stronger partner for policy makers. To do this we must first identify points of connection, define obstacles and pathways and develop initial steps for greater collaborative engagement.

In this closed session, with key stakeholders from the jazz community, we’ll look to draw consensus on one or two action points to vet with policy makers in the public session immediately following. Please join us as to discuss fresh ideas that bring more jazz to more people and strategize how to mobilize and execute on the local and national levels.

Monday, 28 October 2013, Georgetown University
12:30-1:50 pm – Closed Session with policymakers
2-2:45 pm – Public Session with policymakers as part of the 2013 FMC Summit*

More details will be forwarded about the meeting as attendees confirm. RSVP to jean@futureofmusic.org. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or suggestions.

* All invitees RSVPing before 10/1 will be offered complimentary registration to the 2013 FMC Summit Monday 28 October – Tuesday 29 October at Georgetown University. Read more about the Summit here.
