92nd Street Y Broadcasts at the Four Corners Arts Center
The Four Corners Arts Center is initiating a special fundraising program to receive live mid-week broadcasts via satellite of their acclaimed series of interviews and panel discussions of current ideas and issues. The 92nd Street Y is renowned as a one of the nation’s foremost cultural centers and an organization of remarkable diversity and vitality.
Last year the Arts Center obtained an exclusive contract with the 92nd St Y to broadcast these programs for the communities of Newport County and East Bay Rhode Island as well as most of Bristol County in South Coast Massachusetts.
The 92nd St. Y has recently announced its 2011 schedule of broadcasts which are listed below. The variety of these programs range from discussions of the efforts to save Soviet Jewry to an interactive Scrabble Master Class with Joe Edley. Most broadcasts are mid-week at 8PM at The Meeting House in historic Tiverton Four Corners. Admission is free.
During the 2010 season the Four Corners Arts Center broadcast a live debate between Christopher Hitchens and Tariq Ramadan on whether Islam was a religion of peace. In addition there were live broadcast interviews with Tzipi Livni, one of Israel’s most prominent political figures, Tony Blair, Alan Dershowitz; Lewis Black, and Jim Cramer.
To accomplish the 2011 fundraising goal, the Arts Center is looking for Sponsors and Contributors for these programs in order that the broadcast are free and open to the public. Sponsorships for a specific program are $200.
All donors are recognized in our annual Program of Events booklet
