Making Arts Journalism Viral

At a time when both the art and business of arts journalism are undergoing transformative change, A National Summit on Arts Journalism is being convened to explore some of that change – on Friday, October 2 at Noon EST.

The Summit will present a range of ideas and projects representing current thinking in covering the arts. Five projects were selected in an open call this summer that attracted 109 submissions. Five additional projects will be presented representing broad trends in the field of journalism. Presentations will be made in front of a live audience, streamed over the internet and archived on this Web site.

Watch the live event right here from Noon – 4 p.m. EST
