The Global Association for Interconnective Arts (GAIA), a new international organization, has been established by five long-respected music programs—the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at the New School, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, and the Siena Jazz Academy—to implement new ways of educating young musicians. The GAIA will be led by pianist Danilo Pérez, along with representatives from the five schools.

“Our hope is that the GAIA will foster an international platform that inspires young artists to find adventurous proposals of great pedagogical, artistic, and social significance,” Pérez said in a press release announcing the organization, “helping us rise to the challenge of living in peace with dignity, justice, and freedom.”
