Welcome to [art]seen!

Our [art]seen bloggers are University of Michigan students who review arts events on and around campus, sharing their thoughts and experiences on live music, film screenings, dance performances, theatre productions and art exhibitions.
If you’re a U-M student interested in becoming a regular blogger, there may be a position available to get paid for your blogs! Read more about Blogging Opportunities here!

Apply to the [art]seen Reviewer Group

As you know, anyone can post about arts events on this forum, but if you want to get paid for it, you can apply to be a part of the Reviewer Group.

Being a part of the art[seen] Reviewer Group gives you a way to go to great events for free, and be paid for your participation in our online arts community. Applicants should be undergraduate students with a strong interest in both writing as well as attending and reviewing arts events!

Here’s how it works: You propose attendance at any campus or Ann Arbor arts related event that you think would be of interest to other students. Proposals should come a week in advance if possible. Tickets should not be more than $25 each (as a student ticket price), and free events are great too! We secure two tickets for you and a friend. You attend the event!

Within 48 hours of attending, you log on to art[seen] and write about the event — a critique, your experience, associated musings, pictures of yourself and the cast/band/artist backstage, scanned materials from the event, etc.

We will pay you $5.00 for a preview and $10.00 for the review (assuming the hour you will spend posting afterward. Previews are generally shorter than reviews, and reviews should be well thought out and substantive). Subsequent posting in response to others is encouraged, but not compensated (this is your public, you can interact as you see fit!).

Rinse and repeat — up to 2 ticketed events per month during the semester ($60 limit per month), and up to 2 free events per week as well!

If you are interested in being a part of the Reviewers, you can apply here. Applications are due by September 27, 2009.
