As a logic sequel to Jazz Connective, International Jazz Platform & the Périscope launched this year Footprints, a 3 year cooperation programme working on training, mentoring and certifying responsible practices for artistic circulation.
This process will be focusing on social, economic and ecological responsibility in the music industry while supporting young agents and artists to develop their artistic circulation.
Footprints is a collaborative project with Bimhuis (the Netherlands), Oslo Jazz Festival (Norway), Austrian Music Export (Austria), Druga Godba (Slovenia), International Jazz Platform (Poland) & Périscope (France).
