Foundation Jazz Meets Cultures
The Foundation Jazz Meets Cultures, residing in Curaçao,
was founded in 2018 with the purpose of:
The Foundation Jazz Meets Cultures seeks to organize and coordinate courses and workshops in music, dance and laboral empowerment for talented people in our community. We focus primarily on youths from families facing persistent challenges of financial and other kind, which stalls the needed progress for becoming well balanced and productive inhabitants of Curaçao.
The Festival is one of several activities in the field of music and dance that the Foundation hosts, in order to generate funds for reaching its goals. The concerts and festivals will be characterized by the combination of jazz with local music of Curaçao and of other (island) nations.
Simultaneously this festival offers these youths the opportunity to give high level performances in front of an international audience. So, apart from fashioning our youths for success and raising appreciation and growth for our culture, the Jazz Meets Cultures Festival contributes to broadening our touristic product and to making it more appealing.
The Jazz Meets Cultures Festival perfectly matches the objectives of the Foundation. The multicultural music of the festival annually attracts a local audience and international guests. The visitors come not only to enjoy the festival, but also to experience something that is unique. The festival helps placing Curaçao as a stage for the Caribbean.
