About Articulate

Articulate believes that art is for everyone, that creative expression is a basic human need, and that culture tells us who we are.

As such, we approach artists as deep thinkers and doers who both reflect, and help shape, our understanding of the world.

Host and Managing Editor

Jim Cotter is an Irish born American journalist whose love of the arts runs deep. 

From an early age, he rebelled against his family’s focus on Irish traditions by developing a relentless curiosity about all art forms and diverse cultures. 

Yet despite this lifelong obsession, he's never quite cut it as an artist. Instead, he has dedicated more than three decades to developing a different kind of arts journalism — one aimed at helping others make the same kinds of connections with art that have been so meaningful to him.
