This season, join "Artbound" as it explores the artists and movements in California with a focus on the social movements of the 1960s and the legacy that continues today, from a jazz ethos passed on through generations in Leimert Park to the Light and Space movement that began in the 1960s. Through broadcast episodes and multimedia projects, "Artbound" brings to light the region’s rich cultural legacy and diversity. "Artbound" is the winner of multiple Emmys, Golden Mikes and Press Club awards.


The role of "Artbound" is not just to record, report and broadcast the cultural stories of our time and our region; our aim is to create mechanisms — be it partnerships, projects or online tools — through which audiences participate in an ongoing narrative. Episodes will also be streaming here following its broadcast, as well as on Amazon, YouTube, Roku and Apple TV.
