What does “regional” arts journalism mean when writers are covering stories for online audiences?

In Mn Artist’s 4 x Forum events, thoughtfully assembled panels of experts and new thinkers—mixing different perspectives, modes of practice, and areas of expertise—come together for issue-specific, moderated dialogues.

Beginning in January 2015, Mn Artists introduces a new series of programs geared toward taking some of our cultural scene’s most intriguing, hot-button conversations offline and in-person.


Julia Nekessa Opoti, writer, broadcaster and host of “The New Minnesotans” on AM 950

Alan Berks, playwright, director and cofounder and editor of Minnesota Playlist

Andrea Swensson, a music reporter at Minnesota Public Radio's 89.3 The Current and the voice of the Local Current Blog

Christina Schmid, a writer, teacher, occasional curator, and sometimes critic whose essays and reviews have been published in Artforum, ArtPulse, Afterimage, Flash Art, Foam, and Mn Artists

Moderated by Susannah Schouweiler
