The mission of Kansas City Jazz ALIVE is to:
E-Provide EXPOSURE to applicable resources for the Kansas City jazz community
The “Exposure Committee” wanted to find a way to address the unemployment issues area musicians presently face. Realizing that many musicians will not secure musical work on a consistent basis, but can explore other employment opportunities/options to achieve the same goals, the “Exposure Committee” formed the “Musicians Assisting Musicians” (MAM) speaker and workshop series.
In April 2019 as part of Jazz Appreciation Month, KC Jazz ALIVE partnered with Mid-America Arts Alliance to host Jazz Artist Inc. This 2-day workshop featured hands-on activities to assist jazz musicians in shaping their jazz careers!
Stay tuned for information on additional workshops and resources in 2019!
