Weekly cultural showcase hosted by York's 2014 Arts & Cultural Community Liaison and Poet Laureate Emerita, Carla Christopher, featuring interviews, studio performances, venue footage and viewer web clips from the diverse and dynamic scene exploding in the Greater York area. Traditional and spoken word poets, musicians & artists give performances of their best work and insight into their behind-the-scenes world.


Are you an artist practicing or living in the York area? Do you know one that is? Have an idea for a segment or a venue that you think should be profiled on the show? We LOVE hearing and using new ideas from our friends on the street. E-mail comments and suggestions to This email address is being protected from spambots.
