Women in Jazz Media

Women in Jazz Media is an award winning not-for-profit organisation created to help support and create an equal, diverse, safe and healthy Jazz Industry. We are a team of writers, photographers, painters, musicians, presenters, journalists, producers, editors and more, and we are based in China, Spain, Germany, the USA, Serbia, Scotland and England but have roots in France, Italy, Jamaica, Poland, Russia and beyond and collectively speak eight languages.

As we are currently not funded and all of our work is volunteer-based, we are looking to raise some money to support the work we do. Contributions will go towards:

Events: paying musicians and engineers
Publications: paying writers and photographers
Podcasts: Paying hosts and guests
Mentoring Scheme for Writers: paying mentors and new writers
General Admin costs: Design software, magazine subscription platform, website hosting

WHAT DO WE DO?

So much! Jazz represents freedom of expression, and yet historically, women, people of colour and many other communities have not been given equal opportunities in the Jazz industry. We explore a wide variety of initiatives to help increase the gender and diversity balance to ensure everyone has a voice. We look for platforms, and where no platforms exist, we create ones to ensure everyone can be represented. We published our first entirely female-led and managed digital magazine, platforming women on International Women’s Day in March 2021 and now publish three magazines a year, with a readership of over 10,000. Actively seeking out existing female writers to support and promote their work, we also search for new female writers and offer support through our mentoring scheme. Working with our partner publications and organisations, we explore the diversity of their content and offer support to increase representation where needed. Through our podcast series, we explore the careers of industry specialists, challenges and inspirations and discuss what actions we can all take to support and encourage a more diverse Jazz industry. We also put on a wide range of female-led events across the UK, including the EFG London Jazz Festival

Anyone who contributes £100 or more will get a shout-out in our magazine!
