Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2015

Take The Green Train A seminar on sustainability in music presented by the Europe Jazz Network and Julie’s Bicycle

The Barbour Room

Europe Jazz Network (of whom Sage Gateshead, Serious and Jazz North are all members) are working with the agency Julie’s Bicycle to examine how jazz promoters across Europe can develop green policies.

This seminar will include case studies from jazz promoters and festivals in the UK and Europe as well as speakers from other areas of music. This event is part of a 3-year programme funded by the EU. Julie’s Bicycle lead the field in making environmental sustainability intrinsic in the creative industries.

Sage Gateshead’s own Green Team will also be piloting various green initiatives during the festival.

“…touring will always have an environmental impact, especially when musicians from all over the world gather in one place, but how do we capitalise on that vital cultural exchange without neglecting our ecological responsibilities?” Read the full preview from London Jazz News.
