Research Matters Because Jazz Improvisation Can Build Stronger Communities

Below is a link to the Why Research Matters website, a major new campaign from the Council of Ontario Universities that recently launched. Each Ontario University was asked to nominate major research projects or activities to be profiled. ICASP was chosen as the project to highlight from The University of Guelph.

Once again, the ICASP project is commended and highlighted for its ability to use improvised music to help transform people and build communities.
