Applications due March 28 for the 2019 Bang on a Can Media Workshop at MASS MoCA

The Bang on a Can Media Workshop at MASS MoCA is an exploration of contemporary music criticism and journalism taking place from July 27-Aug 5, 2019.

“One of the most meaningful and impactful experiences of my writing career thus far.”  - Maggie Molloy 2018 participant

Bang on a Can, our special guest faculty, John Schaefer (of WNYC's New Sounds), Will Robin (writer and musicologist), and 4 writers in the early stages of their careers will gather at MASS MoCA (the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, MA) to explore the role of criticism and journalism in today's dynamic contemporary music scene. 

The aim of the workshop is to help writers generate a vocabulary, syntax, and context that is most useful for readers/ listeners and to make modern music and criticism more accessible, welcoming, and exciting to all audiences.

Applications are due March 28.
