National Summit on Arts Journalism at Prelude!

In concert with Prelude Festival 09: Ecologies, Economies, and Engagement, The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center is thrilled to partner with the USC Annenberg School of Communication as they host A National Summit on Arts Journalism. At a time when both the art and business of arts journalism are undergoing transformative change, the Summit will present a range of ideas and projects representing current and new models in arts coverage.  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.

The Graduate Center will live stream the event from its location at University of Southern California on Friday October 2, 2009 beginning at 12 PM (EST). Come by the Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue @ 34th Street) on Friday to catch some or all of the days events, live from California. To reserve a seat or for general inquiry, please contact
