The North Shore Arts community, spearheaded by a former print arts writer, has launched a site to cover the area's arts scene. The Art Throb.
They have a "cadre" of writers to cover a variety of beats.
Big welcome to them. You can check them out here.
They indicate that their funding comes from a combination of "sponsors, donors and grants."
Of course,as some earlier discussions on my blog and others have pondered the question remains: Where will critical thinking and writing fit into a mix such as this?
