We are very excited to be celebrating Vanguard Culture’s 6th anniversary of arts coverage in November, this year. 2018 came with many wonderful milestones including gaining over 15,000 subscribers on our weekly newsletter and close to 10,000 monthly visitors on our website; an award by the San Diego Press Club for Excellence in Journalism; and a feature on National Geographic for our recent SENSORIUM event at IDEA1. All of this was accomplished by a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers!
Our arts coverage is comprised of THE BUZZ, featuring artist interviews, show reviews, and behind-the-scenes insight into San Diego’s Arts & Culture; POETIC LICENSE, featuring beautiful photo essays of artist studio visits by visual artist/curator Chi Essary; and our newsletter Vanguard Culture Weekly, featuring a curated selection of San Diego’s best, most exciting, and unique cultural and culinary events.
We believe in the importance of quality arts journalism because it clearly aligns with our mission to create arts jobs, bring diverse communities together, and inspire creative collaboration. Increased coverage of San Diego’s vibrant arts and culture scene helps to inspire new generations of arts supporters and patrons, which in turn supports arts jobs across the region. We are grateful for the opportunity to share San Diego’s cultural treasures with a wider audience and could not do what we do without the tremendous support and talent of our Cultural Correspondents: Please take a moment to meet them HERE.
We salute the many online and print publications who also support San Diego’s Creative Industries by providing coverage of its vibrant arts and culture, including KPBS, ArtGuide San Diego, San Diego Magazine, CityBeat, Voice of San Diego, San Diego Visual Arts Network, San Diego Troubadour, San Diego Story, and many more.
Thank you for your continued support of San Diego’s Creative Industries.
