Central Brooklyn

Jazz Consortium

( CBJC )

Mission Statement

The Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium is committed to the development of audiences and the nurturing of institutions and individuals throughout Brooklyn that specifically deal with Jazz as well as other African American cultural expressions (dance, theater, visual arts, comedy and poetry). 

Our Mission is to recognize  the  contributions of artists and the role they play in advancing the culture while promoting the dignity of a people; to develop venues that are affordable, accessible, and attractive to children, teenagers, men, women, and elders; to provide a forum for cultural exchanges; to build coalitions by working collectively and sharing information with the aim of reestablishing the spiritual and emotional connections between African American artists and their communities.
