The Woodshed Network was conceived as a program for Women in Jazz, to provide professional support and accelerate careers through mentorship, knowledge sharing and community interaction.
TWN is a collaboration between Artistic Director, Dee Dee Bridgewater, DDB Productions, Bridgewater Artists Management, and 651 ARTS with funding by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
Our program is specifically tailored to women, both in focus and leadership. Our mission is to shift the culture and environment towards one that equitably embraces, celebrates and supports women, who have and continue to contribute so much to this unique art form.
INCLUSION STATEMENTTWN is an inclusive community, welcoming all persons who self-identify with womanhood (trans, cis, non-binary).
