Arts administrator and live-theater fan Ben Cameron looks at the state of the live arts asking: How can the magic of live theater, live music, live dance compete with the always-on Internet?

Ben Cameron is the Program Director, Arts, at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation in New York, where he supervises a $13 million grants program aimed at the theatre, contemporary dance, jazz and presenting fields. Grants happen in three main areas: commissioning and distribution of new works; building strong arts organizations; and supporting national arts organizations.

During 13 seasons, Cameron has been a panelist on the opera quiz during the Live from the Metropolitan radio broadcasts from New York. He has also served as a member of the Tony Awards Nominating Committee. "Ben Cameron is one of the most articulate proponents´╗┐ and supporters of the´╗┐ performing arts." Source:
