Gadfly calls your attention to this important project out of Lehigh University with which we plan to collaborate:
The Southsider Vision
Southsider focuses on celebrating our vibrant arts district by creating a forum for reportage on arts programming and local artists on the South Side of Bethlehem. With funding from the Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative and the South Side Initiative of Lehigh University, Southsider reporters compose articles that include reviews of theatrical performances, musical shows, films, and gallery openings. We also provide interviews with area artists and discussions of the ongoing arts programming and arts organizations on the South Side of Bethlehem.
We envision a website in which residents of Bethlehem can reflect upon the power and import of local arts events, artists, and cultural organizations. While Southsider staff will continue to pen articles for the site, we hope that community members also will take time to write pieces that discuss South Side arts and culture.
Please put this one on your speed-dial!
