ST. JOHN’S, Antigua--Khadijah Simon, a nineteen-year-old musician and entrepreneur hailing from Antigua and Barbuda, is thrilled to announce her acceptance to the highly anticipated “Jazz Emprende 2024” event set to take place in Havana, Cuba, from February 27 to 29.

This extraordinary opportunity is made possible through the generous sponsorship of the UNESCO Transcultura Programme, with the support of the European Union.

This unique event, at the convergence of jazz music and entrepreneurial activity, is poised to be a groundbreaking initiative fostering creativity, innovation and cultural expression within the Caribbean region.

The “Jazz Emprende 2024” event offers a dynamic platform for young entrepreneurs like Simon to enrich their professional competence, enhance entrepreneurial skills and partake in knowledge transferred through masterclasses, workshops and live concerts.

The UNESCO Transcultura Programme, through its sponsorship, is covering the international mobility expenses for Simon, ensuring her participation in this transformative experience.

This includes round-trip flights, transfers, accommodation, meals and daily transportation in Havana.

“I am truly grateful to have been selected for this incredible opportunity. The support from the UNESCO Transcultura Programme will undoubtedly amplify my entrepreneurial journey in the jazz music sector. I look forward to immersing myself in the rich cultural and musical heritage of the Caribbean, connecting with industry professionals, and gaining valuable insights to further develop my creative project,” expressed Simon.

The purpose of the sponsorship is to facilitate Simon’s growth by providing access to entrepreneurship workshops, conferences and networking activities with key stakeholders from the international jazz market.

The UNESCO Transcultura Programme aims to not only empower young Caribbean entrepreneurs in the jazz music sector but also to increase the visibility and recognition of Caribbean jazz, enhancing the region’s cultural identity and heritage.

The impact of this sponsorship extends beyond participants’ personal growth, with the potential to contribute to the development of the cultural and creative industries in the Caribbean.
