ALL ARTS Turns One!

ALL ARTS is celebrating its first anniversary of being a broadcast channel. Here are some highlights from the past year:

ALL ARTS regularly featured programs from WNET’s archive, featuring artists such as Toni Morrison and Aaron Copland. Other original programming include Box Burners, The C Files with Maria Brito and Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw.
  • ALL ARTS Talks, a live conversation series, kicks off at the Flux Factory.
  • A city-wide outdoor campaign for ALL ARTS launches across New York City’s five boroughs.
  • Climate Artists, a collaboration with Peril and Promise and IEG, and Rising Artist, a collaboration with Kids’ Education & Media, launch.
  • The Bessies, aka NY Dance and Performance Awards are broadcast for the first time, on ALL ARTS.
  • ALL ARTS hosts three live performances at Winter’s Eve.
  • In December, Taylor Mac is named ALL ARTS’ first Artist in Residence.

“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
