The Program

JAZZSPACE promotes the growth and development of emerging jazz artists through financial support, mentorship and professional advice, and performance opportunities. Artists-in-residence with the program are selected through a competitive application process.

We’re starting out by offering up to four deserving musicians a stipend of up to $400 each to support creative activities and/or work related expenses such as equipment or space rental, professional development opportunity, travel, or instrument maintenance. The selected artists this year will be expected to perform in at least one JAZZSPACE sponsored event.

At JAZZSPACE, we believe God loves all jazz artists. So whether or not you apply or are chosen for this program, we would consider it a privilege to pray for you over the coming year. Feel free to email any prayer requests to Anything you send to that email will be kept strictly confidential and shared only with the JAZZSPACE Prayer Team. (You certainly do not have to be a "religious" person to participate, and whether or not you send us prayer requests it will have NO bearing on our consideration of you for the program. We just love jazz folks!)
