NEA to nurture critics in the arts

Schools to target journos in major media spots

WASHINGTON — The National Endowment for the Arts will establish three Arts Journalism Institutes, focusing on improving arts criticism in theater, dance, classical music and opera.

The institutes will target journalists who cover the arts for print and broadcast outlets located outside the country’s largest media markets, where professional development opportunities are limited.

The NEA will provide $1 million for the first two years of the program. The institute for theater critics will be hosted by USC’s Annenberg School for Communication. The other participants are the American Dance Festival at Duke U., for dance critics, and Columbia U. for classical music and opera critics.

Beginning this summer, each site will host an annual two- or three-week institute for up to 30 attendees.
