Traditional arts journalism is in decline. Now more than ever, this independent website and our podcast fill a growing void.
We've had over 1.5 million page views, and are grateful that you are here.
We rely on readers — and a handful of advertisers who share our values — to make our work possible. When we raised funds for our podcast, The "Performers Podcast," the average donation from people like you was $96.
Now we hope you’ll join us in augmenting our coverage of arts in the region by making a one-time donation today.
