Welcome.
JAZZ SOUTH

Jazz South is a brand new 3-year initiative to help support the development of jazz musicians, promoters and educational opportunities across a region (outside of London) that embraces all of South East and South West England – from Kent to Cornwall to Oxfordshire.

Led and hosted by Turner Sims, Southampton, who planned and raised a major funding award from Arts Council England to underpin the project, Jazz South is a programme that will provide a range of new opportunities in the region including touring, commissions, masterclasses, residentials and networking events.

A website and social media pages are being developed which will carry information about Jazz South activities and opportunities. This is just a holding page while the new website is being designed and built and the full Jazz South programme is being finalised.



DESIGN TENDER

Jazz South is seeking tenders from designers and developers for two associated briefs – for Design/Branding and for full Website development, to serve the new Jazz South project and programme.

Anyone interested in tendering for either or both can obtain full details and copies of the briefs by downloading them here or by emailing the Jazz South Set Up Manager – via r.knowles@soton.ac.uk

TAKE PART IN THE FIRST EVER JAZZ SURVEY ACROSS THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND

COMPLETE THE SURVEY HERE: JAZZSOUTHAUDIT

In order to engage as many people as possible with Jazz South, Turner Sims wants to ensure that they know who’s doing what and where and identify a comprehensive range of contacts. So, the first step in rolling out the Jazz South programme is active research to establish an accurate and comprehensive picture of every aspect of the jazz scene in the region.

A full audit has been commissioned to collect information about musicians, promoters, venues, festivals, youth orchestras, education projects, labels – in fact anyone and anything connected with the music.

Jazzwise, a partner in the initiative, wants to ensure that everyone active in the region’s scene pitches in – and is offering a free year’s subscription to the magazine – and a coveted Jazzwise T-shirt – to be awarded in a prize draw among all those who fill in the online survey which will be a key part of the audit.
