Joining the French and European networks of jazz festivals was a natural step for Marseille Jazz des cinq continents to pursue its ambitious development. The festival is enthusiastically committed to this approach in order to compare its experiences and share its evaluations. The other obvious thing for an artistic event like Marseille Jazz des cinq continents is to join and share with its colleagues in order to set up co-productions and new projects together and to play its part in the constantly renewed dissemination of the most contemporary and open jazz creation. The health crisis has revealed the importance of networks: sharing, dialogue and mutual aid are the key words.
Marseille Jazz des cinq continents is a member of professional networks:
ASSOCIATION JAZZÉ CROISÉ
AJC currently brings together nearly 90 French and European structures that share its objectives and values, as set out in its charter, and has thus become the leading European network for the dissemination and production of jazz and improvised music, potentially reaching more than 1.5 million spectators each year…
EUROPE JAZZ NETWORK
European jazz already functions as a catalyst between different cultural heritages coming from local sources or migrants, between known and newly discovered musical forms. Its openness and thirst for diversity protect it from all forms of nationalism. As an art form, jazz has always produced its richest artistic output at the point where cultures and social structures meet in motion. Today, the EJN is 165 organizations in 35 countries.
COFEES – COLLECTIF DES FESTIVALS ECO-RESPONSABLES ET SOLIDAIRES
The actions of COFEES are based on 4 main principles: transmission, territoriality, transversality and mutualisation. The members of COFEES have in common the stated ambition to participate in a sustainable development of the territories in which they act. They are respectful of the environment, the public and their employees. By joining the collective, Marseille Jazz wishes to nurture this desire to share knowledge and experience and to pool resources and means. We are helping to raise the profile of these issues.
JAZZ SUR LA VILLE
Jazz sur la Ville is an independent, open and atypical collective made up of venues, associations, personalities and producers who love jazz. There are more than 30 venues, 55 events and many artists! A living, open jazz that draws on its roots while being totally anchored in our time! A jazz that resembles Marseille, a port open to the world where plurality and difference are a strength.
PAM – PÔLE DE COOPÉRATION DES ACTEURS DE LA FILIÈRE MUSICALE EN RÉGION SUD & CORSE
The PAM works to structure and develop the musical sector in the region and at its creation has nearly 100 member structures federated throughout the territory. It covers all the activities of the musical sector, and its objectives are to consolidate the development and professionalisation of the players in the region, to strengthen support for artistic projects and to enable the promotion of the region nationally and even internationally, to develop economic, social and cultural innovation and to participate in the co-construction of public policies.
