We Love Jazz SG proudly hosted our first sharing platform. Speakup! Speaklouder Talking Sessions (SUSL) is an every-3months-series of safe and open platform for sharing and discussing about our discipline, community or anything around jazz and improvised arts in Singapore. For the first instalment, we raised a topic that is generic maybe but most important; Sustainability of jazz & improvised music in Singapore.
