What We Do

Seed Artists has produced a wide range of music and arts programming since our re-introduction on 2014 with the first Eric Dolphy: Freedom of Sound festival. Concerts at universities, cultural centers, galleries, churches, schools, and the public library. Listening sessions. Jazz films. Kids’ programming ranging from storybuilding and instrument-making camps to a Discover Jazz concert an art parade, and a surprise cumbia concert, Pied Piper-style, at an elementary school. And a book-donation program for at-risk teens in Harlem. Great Art for Good Works.
