Media for Cultural and Artistic Impact

Powered by Local Authorities

Curating writers of the arts, and local arts and culture institutions across 60 cities

Local Arts News is a breaking news network devoted to highlighting leading thinkers, journalists and artists themselves who chronicle local stories of artistic and cultural impact. The network is comprised of 60 individual city feeds covering the top cities in the US, each displaying news and events from arts institutions on the website, Twitter, Facebook and other social media. The mission of Local Arts News is to provide local news consumers with a comprehensive series of breaking articles on artistic impact related to their locale or community.
News consumers normally discover and follow news of arts impact from national publications like New York Times or The Guardian. Finding the same caliber of news at the local level is a hurdle because the traditional local media report on an entrenched menu of crime, car crashes, weather and sports. Local Arts News syndicates both the most influential independent news publishers and the non-traditional media – the local bloggers, indie news publishers, arts organizations, nonprofits, civic groups, and academics who can analyze, dissect and expose local news and events of arts impact with an authority and sensibility complementary to traditional media.
