Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium
Since 1996 the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium, co-presented by the University of Guelph and the Art Gallery of Guelph (formerly the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre) in partnership with the Guelph Jazz Festival, has brought together diverse communities of interest by providing a scholarly forum for dialogue among researchers, creative practitioners, arts presenters, and members of the general public.
The Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium is currently on pause due to COVID-19.
