Based in Dublin, with partners right across Europe, 12 Points jazz festival showcases young, creative artists in jazz and related music.
To mark the EU Presidency in 2013, there will be a two-day Europe Jazz Futures Conference to coincide with the festival, addressing how jazz in Europe will respond to the economic realities, digital challenges and creative opportunities of the next decade. There will also be a one-day meeting in Dublin of the Board of Europe Jazz Network and an additional night of programming at the festival to showcase three Irish ensembles before a public audience and invitees attending the conference and EJN meeting.
12 Points will also publish a double CD with highlights of the last seven 12 Point festivals.
