Arianna Huffington and The Huffington Post's New Arts Section
On June 25, Arianna Huffington addressed a crowd of 1,000 arts professionals at Americans for the Arts Half-Century Summit in Baltimore, Maryland. During her speech, where she addressed how the arts and culture fit into our society, communications, and information sharing, she spoke about the launch of the new arts section on the popular The Huffington Post website. Following her presentation she took questions, one of which was how can people get involved in this new section of The Huffington Post. “We’re looking for the Huffington Post arts section to be a real platform for both a discussion of the arts and a demonstration of the arts,” and goes on to say that this must be a two-way discussion, which is the essence of new media. Listen to her response in this video from the convention on how you can contribute, and stay tuned for some exciting news about Americans for the Arts and The Huffington Post’s new arts section!
