Expanded Course Description
Amongst the so-called ‘world cities’, London is unique in its cultural diversity and artistic richness. It boasts both healthy privately funded and an adventurous publicly subsidised theatre, with two international companies, the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, both playing in the city. There are two opera houses, dance companies, seven symphony orchestras, a film industry and a unique broadcasting system that is dominated by the BBC, the world’s most extensive newsgathering organisation which is committed to a not-for-profit version of public service broadcasting. Then there are art galleries and museums.
It’s hardly surprising that it seems there are more arts journalists working in London than in any other comparable city in the world who satisfy an ever-growing appetite for cultural news, arts reviews and feature material about art and artists. They are skilled at writing for different media, broadcasting, print and online and know exactly how to tailor their work to a specific demographic. And four of the most distinguished of them will joining us during the course.
