Art. 1: « Le Grand Orient de Belgique, obédience masculine, maillon de la franc-maçonnerie universelle, demande à celui qui se présente à l’Initiation d’être honnête homme et d’être capable de comprendre et de propager les principes maçonniques. Il exige de ses membres, la sincérité des convictions, le désir de s’instruire et le dévouement. Il forme une société d’hommes probes et libres qui, liés par des sentiments de liberté, d’égalité et de fraternité, travaillent individuellement et en commun au progrès social, et exercent ainsi la bienveillance dans le sens le plus étendu ».

A sa création, le Grand Orient de Belgique est exclusivement masculin, ses loges n'initient que des hommes. Les loges peuvent cependant décider d'accueillir des sœurs selon des modalités propres à ces premières.

En septembre 2009, Bertrand Fondu, alors grand maître de l'obédience déclare, en référence à une commission d'étude interne sur la mixité que les travaux des loges seront pris en compte en ce qui concerne la création de loge mixte, masculine ou féminine. La réflexion juridique du Grand Collège du Grand Orient de Belgique se clôture un mois après. La conclusion parait dans la presse et annonce une position favorable à la mixité.

Le dimanche 16 février 2020, une assemblée générale extraordinaire historique composée de tous les représentants de l’obédience vote à la majorité de 70% la modification de ses statuts et règlements. Le GOB devient une confédération formée d’une fédération masculine, d’une fédération mixte et d’une fédération féminine.

« La pensée ne doit jamais se soumettre, ni à un dogme, ni à un parti, ni à une passion, ni à un intérêt, ni à une idée préconçue, ni à quoi que ce soit, si ce n'est aux faits eux-mêmes, parce que, pour elle, se soumettre, ce serait cesser d'être. » Henri Poincaré

« Que puis-je savoir ? - Que dois-je faire ? - Que m'est-il permis d'espérer ? » Emmanuel Kant

Ed Bradley Award for Leadership in Jazz
Phil Schaap 
Jazz at Lincoln Center Award for Artistic Excellence

Like all of the public-facing arts, we are challenged to serve our community beyond the reach of this pandemic and its wake of cancelled performances, shutdown of gathering places, and restrictions on travel.

In responding to this crisis and the new world we now find ourselves inhabiting, Jazz at Lincoln Center's annual Spring Gala on April 15th will now be freely broadcast digitally to audiences around the world on this page, as well as on Youtube and Facebook.

Culture-defining artists from Japan, Brazil, Russia, Pakistan, South Africa, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and the United States will join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis for a “first of its kind” high-quality global experience.

This concert will bring us all together to uplift and encourage us with the wisdom and insights of major artists who have represented and elevated their respective cultures for decades. Each will play the song that made them fall in love with jazz, and we are sure it will lift us from the isolation of this moment to the collective memory of a greater future.

We ask you to support this concert with a donation as you are able. Our entire ecosystem has sustained devastating losses, but this concert is a very important way to stay alive and sustain our ability to fulfill and further our mission. The hundreds of artists that perform in Rose Theater, The Appel Room, Dizzy's Club and our dedicated JALC staff humbly thank you for your consideration and your generosity in this trying time for all.

About our Honorees:

We are proud to present the Ed Bradley Award for Leadership in Jazz to Jazz at Lincoln Center Board Member Clarence Otis and Jacqueline L. Bradley, who are leaders in both business and philanthropy. Clarence and Jacqueline have been staunch supporters of JALC and our youth education programs, particularly Let Freedom Swing, that bring live jazz and lessons in democracy to low-income students, and Clarence has served in a number of leadership capacities, including his current role as chair of JALC’s Finance Committee. Clarence also sits on the boards of Verizon and VF Corporation.

We could not be more excited to present this year’s Jazz at Lincoln Center Award for Artistic Excellence to Jazz at Lincoln Center's own Phil Schaap, a true inspiration to all of us working to keep jazz alive. Through a career of broadcasting jazz on the radio for over 44 years, winning him Grammy Awards for Historical Writing, Producing, and Audio Engineering, Schaap is one of our most passionate and dedicated scholars and a staple in the world of jazz preservation.

Proceeds from this evening help make possible the thousands of unique performances, education programs, and resources produced annually by Jazz at Lincoln Center, which reach more than two million people all over the world.
