The not-too-distant future
The Melbourne Jazz Co-operative is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and promoting original live jazz performance by established and emerging artists in Melbourne. Since 1983 our objectives have been to increase the exposure of contemporary jazz performance by making it accessible to audiences, and to provide award waged performance opportunities for emerging andestablished artists.
In addition to support derived from member contributions, the MJC is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Victorian Government, through Creative Victoria, via its Arts
Development Programs, and by APRA/AMCOS.
The MJC is funded not only through state and federal programs, but also by contributions garnered through membership. In addition, we use our membership numbers to demonstrate to funding and governing bodies that live, original jazz performance is an important and valued artform.
