: we are united against the war! we decided that there could be no other topic of the competition than make jazz not war. we realized how important music and culture are. how much music, and jazz in particular, can and does bring joy and positive energy. we realized that in these difficult times, jazz can be a mainstay of normality, because it lies at the opposite extreme to the atrocities and suffering caused by war.
guided by the importance of the topic, we join forces with the silesian jazz club and organize the event under the slogan jazz not war together. the first stage of this year’s competition will be the festival exhibition during this year’s 18th edition of the jazz in ruins international festival. the exhibition will be held in the 150-year-old gzut model hall in gliwice. it will have a pre-selection character, and the final works of the we want jazz competition will be selected from among the posters qualified for it.
