Community Workshops & Lectures
The Jazz & Democracy Project® community workshops offer all the benefits of the school workshops, only this time prepared for larger community or school groups. This includes assemblies and evening events for students K-12 with their siblings and parents, along with administrators, faculty and staff. These larger community workshops have succeeded in the early evening as 90 minute workshops plus a community meal, and they provide a valuable and interactive learning opportunity for your entire school or organizational community. Previous participants appreciated that they were learning something new side-by-side with their children.
J&D Founder, Dr. Wes, has also lectured at the college level, and is available to discuss the jazz-as-democracy metaphor within a variety of fields: African American Studies, American Studies, Education, History, Music and Political Science. See Dr. Wes’ TEDxFillmore Talk as just one example:
