winter jazz fest '20: talk series
In a continued effort to engage artists and audiences in conversations around relevant and impactful issues facing the music community and our broader cultural ecosystem, Moon31 partnered with NYC's largest jazz festival Winter Jazzfest, in order to deconstruct and de-stigmatize subjects often considered too taboo to speak about: wellness in the music industry, addiction, recovery, substance abuse, mental health, along with social justice, gender, environmentalism, and overall health.
The festival, for its 16th year, attracted more than 17,000 attendees, spanned 10 days and took over 20+ venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Moon31 more than quintupled the amount of conversations from previous years, massively expanding its focus and the range of topics discussed during the festival. The event featured speakers, owners, and collaborators from such iconic institutions as The Mayor's Office, House of Yes, the David Lynch Foundation, Grammy Musicares, Summerstage, and many others, as well as had its first ever benefit concert hosted by Robert Glasper entitled "Revive Yo Feelings". As a result, all of this combined received major coverage from outlets like The New York Times, Downbeat, Jazziz, and many more.
Below are a few samples of some of Moon31's work producing, executing, moderating and curating large scale events:
