Do artists and cultural actors have a greater responsibility than delivering good cultural experiences to the public?
At this year's Jazz Conference, we will hear about Moddi's "Unsongs" project, where he has dealt with censored songs from various countries. We will hear about SOS Barnebyer and Kongsberg Jazzfestival's collaboration on the construction of the Children's Jazz House in Malawi, and about how Interkultur Drammen works to invite ALL parts of the city's population into cultural life. Because do we still need to talk about the need for balance - both in relation to gender and ethnicity - in cultural life? And how aware have the year-round organizer and festival organizer become of this in their booking work? We'll talk!
Finally, we challenge central politicians to cultural policy debate. To set the tone, election researcher Frank Aarebrot will talk about the role cultural politics has historically played in election campaign times.

Jazz Is More
How can a festival take social responsibility? Kristina Hesjedal Schnell from SOS Children's Villages tells about the collaboration project with Kongsberg Jazzfestival to build Kongsberg Jazzhus in Malawi and give children and young people the opportunity for a better future.
Everyone must join
How to reach out to and include a greater diversity of audiences? Leader in Interculture Drammen, Kaja Jorem, tells about how they work as bridge builders to highlight the city's status as an inclusive multicultural city. Are we there or is there still a long way to go?
Media and diversity
Does the media focus on maintaining the balance in terms of gender and ethnicity in their news stories? We hear from Karianne Bråthen, political editor at Drammens Tidende.
Everyone's in now, right?
Do we still need to talk about the need for balance in cultural life? How aware are the year-round and festival organizers of this in their booking work? We'll talk!
