Jazzahead! is an exhibition and meeting point for the international jazz scene. Since its premiere in 2006, the event has enriched the regional and national cultural scene with its high quality and diverse jazz as well as with international flair.
With its unique concept combining showcase festival, conference, exhibition and festival – all revolving around the central topic “jazz” –Jazzahead! has become the must-go networking event for the global jazz scene.
Working with the Improvised Music Company, Culture Ireland is examining the feasibility of an expanded Irish presence at the event from 2018 onwards.
For 2017, Culture Ireland is offering a very limited number of delegate bursaries aimed at those artists, managers, members of resource organisations and companies who have a track record of achievement in the contemporary jazz genre. Experience of touring internationally, the availability of excellent promotional material a clear demonstration of the benefits of your attendance at Jazzahead! is also essential.
