Cooler Clinic May: Policy

Monday 13th April
Online via Zoom
Discussion -
1:1 Consultations -
30 minute slots from 12pm-2pm

Each month, Improvised Music Company hosts Cooler Clinics - free CPD events and 1:1 consults. These sessions are an opportunity for jazz and improvising musicians to soundboard, discuss, strategise, and get guidance and feedback from the IMC team.

May's clinic is an online option for those who can't make it into The Cooler or live further away.

This month we’ll be holding an open discussion around the Arts Council’s new Music Policy and how you may be able to use it in your own funding applications or advocacy. With a specific reference to the additional support needed for jazz and improvised music in Ireland, this Music Policy is a key acknowledgement for our sector from the Arts Council and an important one to discuss.

If policy documents seem miles removed from real life, we’ll try to have a look at interpreting them and how you may be able to use some of the elements of the policy practically in your career.

There will also be some 1:1 slots available to talk to the IMC team about anything that’s been concerning you in your career. Topics can be things including social media, funding applications, newsletter marketing, releasing music, domestic and international touring, or many other things that can be challenging for a lot of musicians to navigate.

We love meeting you and hearing all about your exciting projects!


Sign up for the discussion and/or for a 1:1 consultation. You will receive a Zoom link for each section ahead of the date.
