Edinburgh Napier University
16th & 17th of July, 2016
Continental Drift is a unique and dynamic conference hosted by Edinburgh Napier University, in association with the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival. Through a programme of panel discussions, presentations and performances, the conference will present informed and lively discussion around the development of jazz in Europe, and cast an eye to the future of jazz in the region.
The conference is aimed at a broad audience (from jazz-fans to musicians, and academics) and will provide an opportunity for insight into European jazz and the communities, networks, institutions and industries that support and sustain it.
