Welcome to Artbeat

Artbeat is about the arts. All arts, whether works are hanging in a gallery or painted on the walls. Whether songs are played by an orchestra or the guy on the street corner. Words, pictures, sounds and shows. We write about them.

And we write them how we want to read them. You’ll probably find that we won’t be adhering to that old journalistic principle of 5Ws and an H. (For the uninitiated: who, what, when, where, why and how). Our style is a bit looser. We like to play.

That does not mean we won’t be working to bring you the most important and interesting stories around. We strive to uphold the highest levels of integrity and to be uncompromising in our coverage. But, like, we going to deliver the information to you in normal English.

We are a very small team of dedicated staff fueled by coffee, cigarettes and dreams. Late nights and early mornings keep this website running.

So stay along for the ride.
