I want to reiterate the point I made during the initial stages of data collecting for this cultural plan, which is about the inclusion of arts writers and independent journalists in the plan. It would be great to see funding opportunities become available for those who write about the arts in the city or for blogs that focus on covering the city’s artists and exhibitions. If Boston is to catch up with the rest of the world, then it must also take its writers as seriously as it is taking its artists. We're also part of the fragile ecosystem that are the arts in Boston. Just an idea, but any funding for arts writing and blogs could be modeled after the Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation artswriters.org model. Thanks!
