ArtsGreensboro invited the News & Record to explore how we might work together to increase arts coverage, including bringing back reviews of theater, dance, music and exhibitions.

The result is an innovative agreement similar to the underwriting model for public broadcasting. The News & Record maintains its editorial independence, while ArtsGreensboro helps make that expanded coverage possible — with no strings attached.

This strategic partnership is good for the arts and good for our city. It will drive ticket sales (reducing arts organizations’ reliance on fundraising), raise awareness for arts programming and shine a light on the broad range of arts and entertainment options available to all of us. It’s also part of a continuing effort at ArtsGreensboro to raise awareness about the value and impact of the arts.
