Bang on a Can Media Workshop at MASS MoCA

An exploration of contemporary music criticismand journalism

This summer, we are launching a workshop for for music critics and journalists! Bang on a Can, our special guest faculty, John Schaefer (of WNYC's New Sounds), 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. Our aim 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.

Deadline to apply is April 25.
