FUTURE JAZZ VISIONS – Aus Finnland to Europe and back 

Friday 24/4 at 1-2 PM
At Conference Room 2
Free entrance for delegates

The cultural industries and music business scene is changing rapidly. Both creative artists and their managers find themselves in fast-changing situations. This seminar addresses the following topics:

  • How to find new ways of capitalising our creative work?
  • Should the artists build better international connections themselves? How to grow our own grass-roots networks?
  • What about event organisers: can we succeed in creating new forms of producing events and innovative ways to cooperate?
  • What’s up and coming Aus Finnland?
