LatinFree Jazz at Metro Baptist Church, NYC


Latin FreeJazz Festival
Founded in 1996, Arts For Art, (AFA). is a not-for-profit, multi-cultural organization whose principal activities are the presentation of un-compormised creative jazz music, dance, poetry and visual arts by a diverse community of artists. To further out goals of diversity and accessibility we foster education initiatives for the underserved. AFA events specifically encourage a sense of community amongst artists and audiences.

Avantjazz has gone world-wide, gaining audience and artists from all cultures. Thus our programming reflects the development of avantjazz into a multi-cultural music. From the beginning Arts for Art and the Vision Festival have carried a clear message of social awareness. The very institution of Arts For Art is an act of self-determination. AFA holds to the belief that art really moves people and that to move people is a powerful political act.
