AHRC supported jazz research

Colleagues might be interested in a new 15-minute film we have made called Carnivalising the Creative Economy: AHRC-Supported Research on and with British Jazz Festivals, as part of the showcasing of such research projects. It brings together academics and festivals directors from 5 recent / current AHRC funded projects in the field, who discuss the benefits and findings of such collaboration.

The film was made by Gemma Thorpe (http://www.gemmathorpe.com).

You can view it here: http://vimeo.com/88583574
