Members, The past, present and future

The strategy of The Community is to build a huge network of creative people.  Everyone performing or helping out at any of our events, we sign up as a member of The Community Collective.

Do not worry, being a member is something nice.
As a member you have free entrance to all future events arranged by The Community and being a member doesn’t conflict with being a part of another organization or label.
 
We see the Community as an add-on to the real-life community that exist among performers of free improvised music. The idea is that together we are stronger.
 
From time to time you will be invited to participate in our events, either as a performer, a volunteer or a guest.
 
We acknowledge our members as professional musicians and have a principle of trying to raise money for our events, in order to be able to pay the performers. On the other hand we expect that the members will help out voluntarily at some of the events arranged by The Community.
 
For the time being we aim that at least half of the performers at our events are also members.

The Community Productions
 
We are an open community!
The foundation of The Community is the members, so you are most welcome to participate in any way. We are open for new ideas and hope to see the organization grow in members as well as  to the include improvisors from other cities and countries as well as other art forms in the future. In the same way we also try to create our activities in new venues and with new themes and participants in order to also connect to new local environments and invite new audiences. We believe in the strength of cooperation, and the importance of diversity and freedom of expression in music and in life.
 
You are only a member if you want to be a member
If for some unexpected reason you do not want to be a member of The Community and receive emails about upcoming events, write to this email: info@thecommunity-productions.com with “un-member” as subject.
 
The Past
Since The Community was founded in 2014 in Copenhagen (DK) and Berlin (DE) by Nana Pi and Mia Dyberg, we have been making events for Copenhagen Jazz Festival every year. Last year in a lovely collaboration with Koncertkirken at Blågårds plads.
 
The Present and the future
Recently we constituted The Community as a formal organization with the board consisting of Mia Dyberg, Jonathan Aardestrup, Maria Dybbroe and Asger Thomsen. Right now the board is focused on preparing for Vinterjazz 2018 and planning for Copenhagen Jazzfestival 2018. 
 
At the moment the core of The Community consists of: Mia Dyberg, Jonathan Aardestrup, Maria Dybbroe and Asger Thomsen. We have a vision to slowly expand the purpose of the community by engaging and organizing our members through making music events and concerts.
 
In the longer perspective we see a big opportunity of collaboration between the members. It could be sharing international contacts or helping each other making and promoting events. Further down the road we imagine that The Community will make more concrete tools for helping members to make press material, book tours, apply for fundings, arrange events and further more!
