All over the news are stories about the crisis in the Middle East, the crisis in Parliament and the crisis in the global economy. So what else is new? 

What concerns me and my generation is where we fit in beyond this turbulence. We care about how this news affects what's happening in the arts, technology and ideas that impact our everyday lives. We care about culture, now.     

CultureNow offers features, reviews, columns, fiction and blogs that define today's eclectic, fast-paced culture.

This is where we fit in—this is CultureNow.
