What’s next for arts and culture journalism?
The New Routes for Cultural Journalism Seminar, organized by the Foundation for a New Ibero-American Journalism (FNPI) and Mexico’s National Council for the Culture and the Arts (CONACULTA), has just come to and end. You can find the report of activities here (in Spanish).
According to its website, the project attempted to create room for a collective reflection on the social utility of high-quality cultural journalism, and the technological trends that advance journalism to a web-only environment.
Here is an interesting quote from participant Jorge Tirzo, via Revista Mexicana de Comunicación:
“The arts/culture journalist of the future -i.e., the present- is not a traditional journalist equipped with a smartphone and broadband.” The change is much deeper. “The journalism of the 21st Century (the one we should have embraced twelve years ago) requires a new language that is always in construction, instead of the classic formulas of yore.”
