Massachusetts Arts Funders bi-monthly meetings provide a learning opportunity on an issue or trend facing the arts and cultural community coupled with a chance to network and update colleagues on current work, challenges, and opportunities.

The May 2nd meeting will focus on the changing landscape of arts media. How is today’s rapidly changing media industry affecting coverage of the arts and cultural community, and how are our artists and arts organizations responding to those changes? The session will launch with context on the state of the media today and outlook for the future, before moving on to highlight examples provided by media, artists, and funders.
