Guelph Tribune Community Guide Features Article on Guelph Jazz Festival

The 2013-2014 edition of the Guelph Tribune Community Guide includes a positive review of the Guelph Jazz Festival and its twenty years as a mainstay of the Guelph community. The article, written by Ned Bekavac, includes commentary from GJF Artistic Director and ICASP Project Director, Ajay Heble, who remarks on the festival's commitments, "I've often said that the festival is about the music, of course, but for me it's more about reinvigorating public life with the spirit of community and dialogue." The Guelph Jazz Festival will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and attracts many ICASP researchers and colleagues as performers, colloquium presenters, staff, volunteers, and audience members.
