AJC Association Jazzé Croisé
Owner: Maxim Micheliov |
On 1 January 2013, AFIJMA (Association of Innovative Jazz and Contemporary Music Festivals), founded in 1993, opened up to all organisations involved in disseminating jazz (festivals, national and state-sponsored venues, theatres, cultural centres and clubs) which share its objectives and values under the name AJC (Association Jazzé Croisé).
In line with the policy followed by AFIJMA for the last twenty years, AJC continues its commitment to the mobility of artists, the emergence of new talents and the creation of original projects, is becoming more heavily involved in finding new audiences all over the country and is boosting its involvement in the field of cooperation and international exchanges.
The new network is acutely aware that artistic and cultural education, digital technology, diversity and cross-cultural activities now represent priority challenges and is launching new projects on these essential topics straight away.
The programmes which AFIJMA has taken on over the last 20 years will be continued by AJC, with a focus on three areas:
National action: Setting up co-productions and creative tours, reflecting on the economics of productions, setting up French tours for new groups emerging in the regions (“Jazz Migration”).
