Arts Journalism 2.0

Five Action Plans for the Future of Arts Journalism


Monday, October 10, 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Organized by Bill O’Brien, senior advisor for program innovation, National Endowment for the Arts; Dennis Scholl, vice president/arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Journalism is in crisis, and arts coverage has been disproportionately hard hit, literally disappearing from some local communities. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts have selected five innovative ideas that promise to ensure the future of quality arts coverage. These models leverage new technologies, repurpose legacy media platforms, and return locally relevant arts coverage to communities. And these ideas have been funded to be formalized into action plans, the most promising of which will be implemented in the coming year. Join us to see if these new business models also hold promise for your community.
