Ampersand is an Arts & Culture digital magazine that imagines new ways of covering the arts. Among our staff are personal essayists, critics, documentarians, podcasters, and artists. While our talents may cover diverse terrain, the through-line of Ampersand’s body of work is our curiosity and commitment to strong storytelling and thought-provoking criticism. Our mission is to create content that is as creative as the artists we cover.

We are based out of the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.
