Check out the first part of KERA’s new initiative to cover the arts in North Texas! Click on the Arts+Culture logo on the main page of KERA.org (right side in the middle of the page) or go directly to http://www.kera.org/blogs/culture/.
Soon there will be an opportunity for ArtGroupsDFW and other art groups in the area to partner with KERA in providing information about their art activities in a calendar system. Arts+Culture is also looking for bloggers to contribute content.
About the blog:
KERA, a major public broadcasting producer and the leading public radio and television station for North Texas, is strengthening its online presence through the launch of a new blog that will focus on artistic and cultural issues both in North Texas and across the world.
The Arts+Culture Blog aims to create an online community through the promotion of local arts events and new works, and discussion of new developments in the cultural world. The blog will also serve as a gateway to art analysis, conversation and exploration across the Internet.
The blog will feature a stable of staff contributors including KERA director of special projects Yolette Garcia, Deep in the Arts host Gini Mascorro and Think senior producer and Anything You Ever Wanted To Know host Jeff Whittington. Additionally, regular contributors from outside KERA will include noted critic and current Arts Journal book contributor Jerome Weeks.
The blog is part of a larger KERA initiative to cover the arts, including a comprehensive arts Web portal that will launch in 2008. The goal is to help artistic endeavors reach new audiences and touch lives, because a greater understanding of the arts enriches the human experience.
The project is made possible through generous support from Donna Wilhelm.
