The Jazz Garden
We are a group of scholars, educators, activists and artists who are on a mission to design gardens of knowledge and creativity, through which we seek to promote research, learning and artistic creativity around diverse fields of knowledge.
This particular garden was planned within the philosophical and artistic principles of Jazz. In its commitment to improvisation, inner truth, dialogue, polyrhythm and social consciousness, Jazz is especially relevant to today’s age of technological automation, social distancing, and cultural polarization.
We invite you to visit the speaker’s corners, to enter the greenhouses, to walk through the flowerbeds — and to contribute to various concepts and projects that are currently germinating throughout the garden. We invite you to join us and become a gardener yourself, by planting and nurturing your own ideas within the garden’s architecture, or just by wandering, dwelling, and meditating in an open field of knowledge.
Produced by the NYU Steinhardt Jazz Studies program, in partnership with SubCulture, hosted by Dr. David Schroeder.
