The IASJ and JEA
The slogan of the IASJ is: 'the worldwide network for jazz performance, education, and research'. There are other networks as well, such as 'Jazz Education Abroad'. After the introduction by Mariano Abello, we will discuss how networking and collaboration on a worldwide level can take place.
Jazz Education Abroad (JEA) is a not-for-profit organization registered in the USA and a non-profit association registered in Spain. Its mission is to increase cultural, musical, and educational awareness through the teaching of Jazz, and music in general, to youth from different backgrounds and regions of the world. Especially to underserved youth in developing countries, refugees, and visually impaired.
