On October 10, the Knight Foundation and the NEA announced the winners of the first Community Arts Journalism Challenge, projects based in Charlotte, Detroit, Miami, Philadelphia, and San Jose. That same day, the USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Program announced its 2011 Fellows and Engine29.org “Pop-up” Lab in Los Angeles. Both initiatives are evidence of new institutional recognition that arts journalism contributes to community building. This roundtable will ask what the individual projects awarded can tell us about future roles for arts journalists and critics as engaged participants in music scenes nationwide.
