Experience Opportunity

Jerwood Jazz Encounters Programme

The Jerwood Jazz Encounters Programme iis an artist development opportunity for up to four early-career jazz artists to create and develop ground-breaking new ways to present jazz at Festivals and outdoor sites across England.

During the 18-month programme, artists will conceive and deliver an outdoor, site-specific or digital work to be hosted by one of the co-producing partners, as well as benefitting from a range of additional support and training throughout the programme including R&D funding, in-depth mentoring, participation in a Creative Lab and more.

Applications are open to UK-based jazz artists who have been working as a professional musician/composer/artist for between three and 10 years.

Applications open on Monday 6 December 2021 and the deadline for applicants is 5:00PM on Monday 24 January 2022.
