    Sightlines: A campaign for arts journalism for Austin

    Sightlines is a new online online magazine of arts, culture, news and ideas based in Austin, Texas.

    This is a Fiscally-Sponsored Project

    Fiscally Sponsored by Fractured Atlas

    Sightlines is a new online magazine of arts, culture, news and ideas based in Austin, Texas. Sightlines is nonprofit media and that means we need your support.

    This initial fundraising campaign is devoted to raising money to pay art writers — committed cultural journalists and critics. We are lean organization on the verge of obtaining our independent 501c3 non-profit status.

    In that spirit of fiscal efficiency, we've structured our donor rewards not around paying for and giving away tote bags and coffee mugs, but offering experiences and opportunities to connect deeper with the cultural community — and to connect with the arts writers who cover that arts scene.

    Sightlines was founded by Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, an award-winning arts journalist — a response to the void left by legacy media outlets as they continue to eliminate professional, dedicated arts and cultural journalism.

    We believe that cultural journalism must be ethical journalism too, and strive to provide news and criticism that is bold and independent.

    The 21st century cultural community doesn’t stop at the Austin city limits. Sightlines takes the long view of global culture, open to voices, ideas and developments outside geographic limits.

    Above all, Sightlines believes in curious people who want and deserve more journalism about the culture of our times.

    Won’t you join us?
