Jazz Art Association wants to promote jazz culture through education, exchange, networking and performance projects in Montenegro and throughout the Balkan region and beyond.

Jazz Art Association is a non-governmental organization dedicated to supporting and promoting jazz music. Founded by Maja Popovic in 2009, this initiative had a catalytic effect upon musicians, educators, scholars, spectators, through concerts, workshops, festivals, teaching, mass media promotion, etc. It is based in Podgorica, the capital city of Montenegro, and the Association gathers together music educators and musicians and scholars experienced in promotion, communication, and education in this field.

Jazz Art aims to provide students with opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills in the domain of jazz, and also to present this art form to broad audiences.
Starting in May 2009, the Association organized a concert series entitled “Karver Jazz Art,” drawing on Podgorica’s local jazz scene and involving young musicians from Montenegro and abroad.  A total of 15 concerts were staged by the end of 2009.

Montenegro also strives to display artistic potential. As has been proven by jazz’s developments during the last half of a century or so, this kind of music is capable of transfiguring the postmodern ethos of various nations into unprecedented sound-aesthetics. Therefore, despite being inhabited by only less than 700,000 people, the old/new country has been acting fast in this respect. Montenegro’s jazz community has found an adequate organizational body in the Jazz Art Association, based in the capital city of Podgorica.
