jazzahead! 2022 Bursaries from Creative Scotland / Glasgow Jazz Festival

13 January 2022


Funding is available for bursaries for artists or their representatives to attend jazzahead! 2022 either online or in person in Bremen (subject to COVID-19 rules allowing international travel).

jazzahead! is the largest gathering of world-class professional delegates working in jazz. The event features a trade fair, showcases and conference sessions. It is a professional and career development opportunity to expand awareness of the international jazz sector, and to network with industry professionals from all over the world: programmers, promoters, record labels, publishers, distributors, artist managers, broadcasters and journalists.

jazzahead! 2022 takes place 28 April-1 May 2022. It will be a hybrid event, making it possible to attend on-site (in person) in Bremen, Germany, or online. You can choose to be considered for a digital and/or in-person bursary.

Scotland-based jazz and improvising musicians or their representatives are invited to apply for a 2022 Delegate Bursary. Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate that they are ready to take advantage of this opportunity. We envisage supporting around 25 new and returning delegates to attend the event, either online or in-person.

To be eligible to apply for a bursary:
• Applicants must be currently resident in Scotland.
• Applicants must be individuals working in jazz and improvised music in Scotland.


All selected delegates will receive:
• A fixed fee to cover the jazzahead! registration fee.
• Inclusion in promotional material produced by Creative Scotland.
• Pre-event briefing through events and a booklet.
