This is a unique event for artists to come together and explore and tackle the challenges facing artists in this sector. Strictly artists only, this is a safe space to share your experiences and shape the sector for the future.
‘Open Space’ style events allow you to set the agenda, so bring your ideas, your questions and an open mind to where the discussion might lead.

With guest speakers Kim Macari and Camilla George.
This discussion is an opportunity for artists to come together and talk to other artists. Jazz North and Lancaster Jazz Festival would like to take this opportunity to understand the needs of artists better, so notes will be taken during the discussion and we hope this will be the start of a open conversation around shaping the future of our activity, and the wider sector.
Please let us know if you have any access requirements to enable you to attend this event.
Hosted online via Zoom, with support from Julia Payne and the Hub.
Kim Macari is an artist-activist who believes in improvisation as a vital form of creative expression, empowerment and freedom.
Her favourite mediums are graphic scores, trumpet playing and spoken word.
She is currently programmer at Vortex Jazz Club, Chair of Jazz Promotion Network and works for Arts Council England.
Camilla George dubbed “the golden girl of jazz” (Jane Cornwell- The Evening Standard) is an acclaimed saxophonist whose love of fusing African and Western music to create her own unique style is a key reason why she is a firm fixture on London’s New UK Jazz Scene.
Camilla’s music is politically minded and heavily linked with African history and slavery.
