What is a Jam Session?
Borrowing the concept from the jazz world, a Jam Session is an event, a web site, an open space, a tool, an online discussion. Already experienced by different types of organisations (from the United Nations to IBM), a Jam Session is organised to facilitate exchange among participants around "always evolving" topics, with the goal of collectively tackling them in a defined period of time.


What is Jamm'Europe?

Following the publication of white paper on the Future of Europe by Juncker commission, Culture Action Europe (CAE) initiated discussion process among cultural operators to contribute to a possible scenario that can guide us into a sustainable future of the European project. The project includes series of interviews with main institutional stakeholders in Brussels (EP, EC, EESC etc.), face-to-face gatherings (CAE hubs) and online discussion (Jamm’Europe) on the future of Europe.

Jamm'Europe is an online gathering for the CAE community and the wider public to re-think Europe in this crucial moment. Collectively, we want to shape a cultural scenario, take the pulse of the cultural sector from Europe and beyond and facilitate a truly dynamic conversation in this historical moment.


How does a Jamm'Europe work?
Jamm'Europe happens in a web-platform that allows multiple activities and conversations to run in parallel. During 8 hours, everybody is welcome online to reply to messages and discussions, engage in activities and conversations. A group of facilitators (offline & online) will allow conversations to be moved forward. For more in-depth conversations, special guests will be invited to participate in "Experts' windows". For a definite period of time (30'), you will have the opportunity to pose them your questions or share your ideas.

Can I post in my own language?

Should I only write?
