This spot on artandseek.org is where we’ll post and expand on arts stories, programs and documentaries that air on KERA radio or television. It’s also where we present the work of our community content partners.
The presentations here examine the art works, people and issues that make up the cultural life of North Texas (including Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, Tyler, Sherman and Wichita Falls). These stories reflect the values of public media, which include a commitment to life-long learning, honesty, accuracy, quality, authenticity, humor and conversation.
You’re invited to join the discussion. You can leave questions, observations and suggestions in the comments section of each of our reports.
Our stories and features, their home on artandseek.org, and the Art&Seek initiative are all services from KERA public media for North Texas.
In addition to our feature content, there’s plenty to check out at artandseek.org, including:
- Art&Seek Blog: Join our blog contributors to converse about what’s going on in the arts today.
- Art&Seek Calendar:Search by category, group or region to find arts events in North Texas
