International Jazz Day, 30. april 2018.
In the long run (after 2020), Pula could become a candidate city for the celebration of the International Jazz Day.
A glorious and accurate definition of the consequences of marking the International Day of Jazz is brought by Ambassador of the Goodwill of UNESCO, musician and composer Herbie Hancock:
"People all over the world have long ago declared the fundamental right to freedom through music. The basic idea of the International Day of Jazz is to educate, raise and discover and nurture the creative potential of young people in small villages as well as in the big cities. Our effort will contribute to the preservation of jazz expression and serve as a guarantee that this rich cultural heritage is a starting point for new generations. "
Entering the World Jazz Movement as part of the celebration of the International Jazz Day, on April 30, 2018, the Association Cultural Initiative will provide a significant cultural music event in Pula
