Museums help preserve  jazz history-- but they also help ensure that jazz remains a living art form through their educational programs and special events. How can community members and organizations with an interest in jazz work more closely with museums and other local cultural institutions so all can contribute to keeping jazz alive and swinging? 

Panelists Marcia Baird-Burris, public affairs specialist, Anacostia Community Museum;  Michael Cogswell, executive director, Louis Armstrong House Museum and Kennith R. Kimery, Executive Director of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and Jazz Oral History Program  talk about their museum's jazz programs and provide some suggestions for community members who want to bring jazz into local museums and cultural institutions and some ideas for  any institution or organization --not just museums-- that would like to integrate more jazz into its programming. .Moderated by JJA President Howard Mandel. 

      TheJazzCruise.comThe 2013-14 JJA online Talking Jazz panels are presented by The Jazz Cruise as part of its Anita E. Berry Jazz Education Fund, with further support from Century Media Partners
