Jazz Connector 13th August - Irish Arts Centres: Future plans and best booking practices.
Continuing our fortnightly Jazz Connector online meet-ups, IMC would again like to invite all the communities of people who make up the jazz world in Ireland - musicians, promoters, educators and venues - to come together for an informal Zoom meet-up on Thursday August 13th from 1:30 - 3:00PM to discuss:
Irish Arts Centres: Future plans and best booking practices.
Join us on Zoom by clicking on THIS LINK at 1:30pm.
If you missed out on the last meeting, you can read all of the talking points that were discussed here.
Multi-disciplinary arts centres are a crucial part of the Irish cultural landscape, and often provide essential platforms for Irish musicians. With the future of many events uncertain, this Jazz Connector will be discussing the future plans of arts centres, when they are planning to host concerts again, and how they are finding creative adaptations to the new normal. As few international festivals and events are on the horizon at the moment, many Irish artists may be looking to national touring and approaching Irish arts centres for projects in the near future.
Joining us as Guest Speakers will be Belinda Quirke, Artistic Director of Solstice Arts Centre Navan, and Elizabeth Whyte, CEO of Wexford Arts Centre, discussing their perspective on programming for Irish arts centres, and how the landscape may be changing.
All of the guest speakers will be expressing their own personal views and will not be speaking on behalf of their various companies/employers.
