Artsy Fartsy Show provides a diverse, youthful voice, fulfilling an art void by providing off-beat, sophisticated and interactive news and entertainment for audiences and artists through radio, online media and performance curation. It believes in the curiosity and intelligence of its audience by committing to the prospect of promoting art as a universal, egalitarian, and inclusive necessity. Artsy Fartsy Show gathers arts-related topic discussions and collaborates performances with artists (obscure, emerging to the world-renowned).
RADIO, ONLINE MEDIA AND PERFORMANCE
Artsy Fartsy Show is a unique arts project in the mediums of radio, media and performance curation. There are no radio programs on Public or commercial radio that have AFS’ unique youthful perspective of presenting sophisticated information with a community radio feel.
In addition to its radio program, Artsy Fartsy Show will develop online applications through the utilization of mobile media which will allow audiences to interact with guests through live interviews and free symposia will be offered for professional artistic growth. Thirdly, Artsy Fartsy Show has curatorial performance events such as AF Sessions, a curated music concert series and other live events (theatre, film, dance) across the country.
Artsy Fartsy Show fulfills the mission of connecting and introducing artists with a broader audience base it may not have reached without AFS.
Artsy Fartsy Show addresses the significant barriers and encourage cultural participation by demographic audiences who have low attendance patterns. The mission is to make the appreciation of art in all its forms and persuasions, accessible and consumable for everyone regardless of ethnicity, socio-economic status, employment, age, gender or cultural barriers. This issue is addressed by presenting stories and connecting artists to audiences, thus eliminating the significant barriers that prevent cultural inclusively.
