The American Theatre Critics Association’s Conference & Event committee invites you to this open discussion about nonprofit arts journalism. Tuesday, April 27, 2021 starting at 8 pm EDT / 5 pm PT.
As arts coverage continues to dwindle in daily newspapers and mainstream media — a situation worsened by COVID-19 — is nonprofit arts journalism the future of the field? A panel of editors and administrators of nonprofit journalism outlets from around the country will discuss various and innovative models, funding, starting a nonprofit, and finding board members.
Moderated by Mark Lowry, ATCA Executive Committee member and cofounder of TheaterJones in Dallas/Fort Worth, the panel includes: Laura Bruney, CEO of the Arts & Business Council of Miami, which runs Artburst Miami; Scott Freeman, Executive Editor of ArtsATL in Atlanta; Alaina Johns, Editor-in-Chief of Broad Street Review in Philadelphia; Christina Rees, Editor-in-Chief of Glasstire, a visual art journalism outlet covering the entire state of Texas; and Kerry Reid, Theater and Dance Editor of Chicago Reader, a longtime Chicago institution that recently became a 501(c)(3).
This is the second in a series of ATCA events designed to be both for critics and by critics. Featuring ATCA members as panelists and moderators, these events will be free, informal and geared toward working arts writers. Stay tuned for upcoming Tuesday night discussions about the impact and reach of your online arts criticism, and more.
OPEN TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
