A short film in which UK music and media academics and leading jazz festival directors discuss collaborative research and knowledge exchange. A focus on collaborative research, and a process of knowledge exchange and co-production. The particular emphasis here is how academics can work in their research with organizations from the creative economy. In this instance, it’s a group of jazz scholars working with jazz festivals. This project documents the history of the music, audience research and looks at the history and influence of certain musicians. It is a process of knowledge exchange in the creative economy, where the interaction between musicians is similar to a good academic discussion.
