International Jazz Day

Sunday 29.04.2018 4:00 PM | Garden

Admission: free

Organizer: Werkstatt der Kulturen
Curation: Eric Vaughn


Conceived of by Herbie Hancock and organised for the first time in 2011 by UNESCO for the 30th of April, International Jazz Day has quickly developed into an event celebrated worldwide. The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN has been organising an annual concert in honour of International Jazz Day since 2013.



In 2018, the INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY programme will take place on Sunday 29th April, with the opening of our Sunday Jazz Jams in the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN garden. In the evening, the World Jazz Nights series will kick off in the café foyer.

On the official International Jazz Day, Monday, 30th April, the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN will be closed to the public. However, a programme for International Jazz Day will still be produced: The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN club will be converted into a studio and new compositions will be practiced and recorded – and streamed live on Facebook.







After our participation in International Jazz Day last year, we got mail from Herbie Hancock!
