The Jazz Garden Day
We are proud to take part and contribute to International Jazz Day 2022 which brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication.
We invite you to visit and to contribute to various concepts and projects that are currently germinating throughout the garden. We invite you to join us and become a Jazz 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.
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY
In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. International Jazz Day is chaired and led by UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who serves as a UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue and Chairman of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz. The Institute is the nonprofit charged with planning, promoting and producing this annual celebration.
