Justin McKenzie (Jazz Refreshed): Mentor


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Mentor Sessions offer 15 minutes of one-on-one interaction with industry leaders and professionals from a variety of fields spanning interactive, film, and music.

Meeting with this mentor is highly recommended if you're interested in marketing/PR, live events, and brand development.

Justin Mckenzie is Creative Director and Co-founder of Music & Arts organisation Jazz re:freshed. Whilst developing a career in Art & Design, Justin co-founded record label and events unit Uprock Recordings, which organically led to the creation of the Jazz re:freshed movement in 2003. An Illustrator/Graphic Artist by trade, it was inevitable that given the creative energy in Jazz re:freshed, Justin would make certain that art and visuality would be central to its philosophy and identity.

You can see Justin’s full bio on his speaker page.
