Jennifer Conlin, A2Ethics Board Member, Wins Sustainable Arts Journalism Grant
CriticCar Detroit is a mobile recording system that will criss-cross the city, offering event-goers the opportunity to record video reviews as they exit performances and exhibitions. Those interviews will later be broadcast on a variety of web channels accessible via smartphones and computers. The critiques generated through CriticCar will not only create buzz about cultural events, but will document in words and images the diversity of Detroit’s cultural life and audiences, and help connect residents and visitors to local arts organizations. Jennifer Conlin will lead the project, which has received and $80,000 grant, as its editor.
