Introducing the Spring 2012 ArtsFwd Blogging Fellow

I’m very pleased to introduce Brian Hinrichs as our newest Blogging Fellow.  You’ll be seeing regular posts from him from now until mid-July.  This past Friday, I hosted our kick-off conference call with Brian and Richard Evans to talk more in depth about the principles that undergird EmcArts and the content on ArtsFwd.  Brian had great questions and brought some fantastic post ideas.  I’m looking forward to seeing his contributions to the site.  Welcome!
