The Jazz & Democracy Project® has inspired thousands of children on two foreign continents plus The Caribbean thanks to education/performance tours with The U.S. Department of State.

The one-time J&D workshop, Jazz as a Metaphor for Democratic Participation, was developed for J&D’s first education tour with the U.S. Embassy in Santiago, Chile. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Wes and a trio of musicians headed to West Africa for an education and performance tour with the U.S. Embassies in Banjul, The Gambia, and Monrovia, Liberia. Most recently, J&D inspired the children of Haiti in conjunction with the U.S. Embassy in Port-Au-Prince.
