International Jazz Day (30/04)

The first International Jazz Day was held in 2012. The introduction of a new date in the calendar and the establishment of its celebration on April 30 was announced by the UNESCO General Conference in November 2011.

The purpose of the holiday, its founders designated "raising the awareness of the international community about the pedagogical role of jazz as a force that promotes peace, unity, dialogue and expansion of contacts between people."

Currently, many public organizations, educational institutions and individuals, as well as government bodies, support the promotion of jazz, and International Jazz Day is one of the tools for this.
