About Take Five: Europe

Take Five: Europe is a new version of the Take Five scheme in the UK designed for emerging jazz musicians who want to significantly develop their international careers. Participants are given the unique opportunity to take ‘time out’ to increase their profile, improve their performance skills and expand their professional networks.

Ten talented emerging artists (two per country per year – from France, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and the UK) take part in a specially devised programme of events, including an inspiring week-long residency at Commonwork where they can strengthen all aspects of their professional future. In addition to motivating creative and business sessions, the artists will take part in special showcases across  European jazz festivals.

Take Five: Europe is supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union and is produced by a consortium of partners.  Please click here for a list.
