The arts section is joining up with Ja. Magazine, an online platform that collects, curates and celebrates the work of local creatives, with a handmade twist. Together with Ja. Magazine, The Journalist Arts page will bring you interviews, reviews and profiles from arts and music festivals around the country. We bring you interviews with upcoming legends and community artists while providing history and context. We do this by celebrating the unique power of the talented men and women who have strengthened the creative fabric of our society through the ages.
