Panel Discussion: The Impact of Arts Journalism Across D.C. and Beyond

 

Moderated by Robert Bettmann, director of the DC Arts Journalism Fellowship.

Arts journalism often doesn't get the mainstream attention afforded to political or accountability coverage, but that doesn't mean it's any less important or valuable. Editors from professional and student publications will share their insights on how the topics they cover interact with their communities, and how practitioners of arts journalism gain wider perspective through their reporting.

Panelists:

Chris Kain, Publisher/Editor, The DC Line

Lorraine Treanor, Publisher/Editor, DC Theatre Scene

Kayla Randall, Arts Editor, Washington City Paper

Sidney Lee, Arts Editor, George Washington University Hatchet

Lydia Calitri, Editor-in-Chief, American University Eagle

 

Award Presentation and Speeches:

Artist and artist writer Diane Charnov will present an award to photographer Carol Harrison for her work documenting artists and their artwork. 

 

PRE AND POST CONFERENCE MENTOR SESSIONS 

Registered attendees may apply to participate in one on one mentor meetings with journalists including: Sarah Kaufman (Washington Post, 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism), Erin Devine (Washington City Paper), Lorraine Treanor (DC Theatre Scene), Chris Kain (The DC Line), Diane Charnov, and more.

 

Thanks to the partnering student and professional publications: The Hilltop of Howard University, The GW Hatchet of George Washington University, The Eagle of American University, Tagg Magazine, The DC LINE, and DC Theatre Scene. The conference is produced within the DC Arts Writing Fellowship, a project of the non-profit Day Eight.
