Recap as of 6/19/23: News you mighta missed

The world rarely arrives in sonata form… we could all use a good recap.


Why “Recap” is back

Longtime readers know that we’ve played with various ways of sharing arts-related news with you, and with varying degrees of success. While we know very well that our Listers have plenty of access to the news that affects their careers, we also know how hard it is to keep up. So we’re returning to a format that was borne out of COVID, with some little alterations for sustainability. (i.e. your editors don’t have all day to put this together. 😉)

As this is our first time back in awhile, we’re including a few links from further back than the last week to ten days, which will be our usual scope going forward. (We’ve been sitting on those for a bit.) Going forward, we’ll probably include more commentary and images as well as news from the Listerhood, but for now, we have links to share.

To submit a link, a photo, an article or an announcement about what you’re doing, contact us. Thanks, everyone!
