The opening of the in Europe unique Jazzcampus was certainly one of the reasons for the tighter cooperation between Basel’s jazz and blues institutions as well as organisators. The continuously growing offer made a better coordination and a respectively exchange of experience necessary.
Synergies between the different organisators are to be build, cooperation instead of conflicts are to be accomplished. A website for local organisators should provide an overview about what is going on when and where in Basel and surroundings.
It’s supposed to be a welcomed information platform for the regional population as well as for the many tourists we have. The medium-term goal is to include also other music stiles on the platform, but at the moment the focus lies on jazz and blues.
Further goals such as improved, collective public relations, promotion of young musicians plus a better representation of interest in public (authorities, institutions etc.) led to the foundation of the „Interest Group Jazz & Blues Basel“.
