Dialogue over conflict. A statement on the war in Ukraine has been released by the Europe Jazz Network, who stand in solidarity with all those affected.

EJN statement on the war in #Ukraine 🇺🇦

The Europe Jazz Network (EJN) strongly condemns the brutal attack on Ukraine and stands in solidarity with its people.

According to the values outlined in the EJN Manifesto of 2004, we believe that peaceful dialogue rather than conflict must be the only means to solve disputes.

As a Europe-wide network of 175 music organisations from 34 countries, we invite all our members and communities to support Ukrainian artists and music professionals who will greatly suffer from the devastating effects of this war. We will follow up shortly with some specific ideas on how to support Ukrainian artists and its cultural operators.

📺 ↔️ 📺 This year during Jazzfest Berlin at Silent Green you can not only experience live concerts on site, but also live streams from the Sognage (Johannesburg), audio-visual commissions from São Paulo and film projects from Cairo. A specially-created multiscreen environment in the Betonhalle will become the fulcrum of a hybrid, decentralised festival concept. Four screens that can be used independently, surrounding the auditorium on all sides, will function as a creative playing field.

A few tickets are left for tonight’s opening. See you there! berlinerfestspiele.de/jazzfest-tickets

About the festival / Über das Festival

Jazzfest Berlin 2020: 5 to 8 November

Jazzfest Berlin, curated by Nadin Deventer from 2018 on, was founded in 1964 as Berliner Jazztage, making it one of Europe’s longest-standing and most renowned jazz festivals. While the first two decades of the festival’s existence focused on the style-defining and popular jazz greats from the United States, the spectrum has since then been extended to include global developments, with an emphasis on contemporary jazz from Europe. The festival endeavours to give a platform to emerging artists and to communicate the enduring vitality of jazz.
