offWOMEX: Network Meetings and Presentations
The capacity turnout at last year's inaugural meeting of jazz movers and shakers at WOMEX confirmed there is great potential waiting to be tapped in the space where improvised and world music meet. If you are a jazz professional with an interest in world music, or a world music professional with an interest in jazz, then don't miss this annual gathering of WOMEX artists, media and professionals with a foot in both camps.
This year there will be a focus on creative perspectives, as we explore the jazz/world theme with WOMEX Showcase artists. Coordinated by Europe Jazz Network, an 84-member organisation active in 27 countries, this is an opportunity for programmers, labels, artists, media and other stakeholders active in the creative space where jazz and world music interact, to forge new contacts, create new partnerships and identify practical steps towards a greater integration of jazz and world music.
