Arts@360 is a new public television and radio series that focuses on arts, music and culture. The series is produced and broadcast statewide by 360 North, and locally by the KTOO radio stations. Individual programs are recoded live @360 in Juneau, Alaska. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writers’ Showcase: Local celebrities and actors read a variety of short fiction and creative non-fiction pieces written by Alaskans. Producers are looking for fresh, diverse prose that is related to a seasonally selected theme. The average reading time for a piece is about 10 minutes.
Alaska Originals: Alaska Originals is an Arts@360 concert series. Alaskan musicians play original compositions in front of a live studio audience with conversation.
The Artist: A series where we focus on the work of the individual artist. We’ll explore the artist’s history, influences, inspiration, and process along with demonstrations, examples of work, and more.
Like the collective experience of watching a play, or a movie at the theater, part of what makes Arts@360 special is our live audience. Some shows will be ticketed, others free or “pay as you can.” All programs will be recorded for broadcast on 360 North Statewide TV and/or the KTOO radio stations, and may be webstreamed. @360 can seat approximately 80 people.
Writers’ Showcase is looking for short stories and essays by Alaskans on the theme of “holidays.” If you have a piece, know of a piece, or want to compose a short story or essay that is 5-12 minutes long when read aloud, please send it to email@example.com by October 10th. If applicable, please include information on publication history or rights. Selected submissions will be read aloud before a live studio audience on November 20th, and will later broadcast on 360 North statewide TV and public radio stations in Alaska. For this program we are especially interested in short fiction.
