A new home for the arts in SA
With the support of foundation partners the Judith Neilson Institute, Ulrike Klein AO, Tracey Whiting AM and the Helpmann Academy, InReview will be launched in time for festival season 2021.
InReview will publish professional, rigorous and credible arts journalism and cultural commentary each weekday, supplemented with print features in Solstice’s CityMag and SALIFE magazine.
InReview will gather together what we believe will be South Australia’s most comprehensive pool of arts critics and journalists to review and explore every aspect of the arts and culture in South Australia.
We’ll cover theatre, music, books and poetry, visual art, dance, design and architecture, popular culture, film and television, and more, drawing on experienced local contributors and also giving opportunities to new voices.
The seed funding will help us to establish the new site and ensure the project launches with a funded pool of professional critics and journalists.
The Helpmann Academy will partner with Solstice on a mentoring project, which will connect experienced critics with new voices and provide an outlet for their developing work.
A digital magazine will be sent free to subscribers each Wednesday, beginning on February 17, 2021, with a strong mix of reviews, commentary, news and features on the broadest sweep of arts and culture in South Australia.
InDaily, SALIFE and CityMag have always covered the arts, but this new project will enable us to hugely expand the depth and breadth of our work.
Ultimately, we hope to develop InReview into a new model for arts journalism throughout Australia – a community and philanthropy-funded project to support professional, rigorous and compelling arts and cultural journalism and commentary.
