  • INTERNATIONAL JOURNALISM SEMINAR | LGBT issues and human rights coverage explored at Boston’s LGBT Media Summit

    My aim is to emphasize opportunities and strategies for the LGBT Media here in the U.S. to cover international issues and human-rights concerns that affect LGBT communities around the world.

  • Culturebot Conversations on Contemporary Performance

    Culturebot’s panel discussion on citizen criticism and the arts live-streams, takes place Jan. 15

The actual discussion itself takes place Sunday, January 15 at 1PM at the LuEsther Lounge @ The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street.

What is the role of the arts writer in today’s society – either “professional” or “amateur”, what is the difference between a reviewer, a critic and a crank, and what does the future hold? Participants: Randy Gener (editor and critic of CriticalStages.org and in the Theater of One World) George Hunka …
