Chris Noth performs in House Seats: Antigone in Ferguson, a production showing us that a 2,500-year-old play is still relevant today.

On January 28, 2019, the ALL ARTS broadcast channel went live. The unprecedented new broadcast channel, streaming platform and website is dedicated to arts and culture 24/7.

Why do the arts matter to you? To commemorate its launch, ALL ARTS asked the online community about the impact of the arts in their lives, resulting in exceedingly high impressions and above-average engagements with @AllArtsTV on Twitter. Organizations like the Brooklyn Library, Guggenheim Museum, Apollo Theater, National Dance Institute, Art21, and SummerStage participated with amazing responses.

“So @AllArtsTV wants to know, ‘Why do the arts matter to you?’ The arts are my way of seeing the world, of navigating all the beauty, and the turmoil. The arts are my religion, my lover, my best friend, my family. The arts, especially music, are my everything.” – Bryan V., via Twitter

Additional expansive programming included House Seats: Antigone in Ferguson, a fusion of Sophocles’ classic tragedy with a contemporary gospel choir and community discussion, in partners; dance series In Motion and music series The Set List. ALL ARTS regularly featured programs from THIRTEEN’s archive, featuring artists such as Toni Morrison and Aaron Copland.

ALL ARTS TALKS, a live conversation series, brought together artists and cultural workers for a discussion about displacement in artistic communities. The free event featured Moira Williams (Flux Factory), Diane Wong (Chinatown Art Brigade), Jazo Brooklyn (Educated Little Monsters) and Joe Ahearn (Withfriends) at Flux Factory in Long Island City.

Partnerships with artists and arts institutions are the backbone of ALL ARTS. The channel has collaborated with a broad range of creators in the New York City area, including, Harlem Stage, BRIC, Triskelion Arts, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Tank, Frigid NY, The Tilles Center for Performing Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bushwick Starr, Inwood Artworks, Brooklyn Film Festival, National Sawdust, Association of Performing Arts Professionals, and many more.

“For me, [ALL ARTS] is like an answer to a lifetime of undared-for prayers. Quite simply, it heals.”
