In 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. For the fifth anniversary of International Jazz Day, Washington, D.C. serves as the 2016 Global Host City with performances, workshops, and discussions. 

This Cultural Capital program partnership is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative.
