What's going on here?


The Chord is a space for deep conversation, contemplation, and celebration of how visual and performing arts are made and received today. It's a place for the unsatisfied, who believe the quality can be higher, the discussion richer, the substance more impactful.

The focus is regional: Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. The perspective is global. 


A mix of conversations, essays, virtual and live events brings together makers, presenters, patrons, cultural producers and thinkers: all of us who make up the circle that is the arts community.


The Chord emphasize process over product. But, I do love a great product.

All published conversations are edited for clarity and readability.

Believe me, it's better that way.

If you feel called to get involved, learn more, or share a tip, do it. Drop your info in the box on this page and I'll be in touch soon.

Founder & Editor,
