Good news for arts journalism. The Macon Arts Alliance has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Art Works grant. The grant is for $80,000 ($40K from NEA, $40K match from Knight Foundation) for a multi-pronged program, including:

  1.  A series of critic/artist symposiums where a prominent critic and a practicing artist is brought in to discuss the role and practice of art criticism. The symposiums will be organized around these discrete mediums: popular music, classical music, film, visual arts, theatre & dance and literature & poetry
  2. Creating embedded internships at arts organizations where students look for interesting stories, create videos and help organizations improve their social media presence
