About us

Welcome to artandseek.org! Thanks for taking a little time to let us introduce ourselves. Here are the answers to a few questions about the Web site.

Who are we and what are we doing here?
This Web site, and the Art&Seek initiative, are services from KERA public media for North Texas. With support from hundreds of arts organizations and venues in our listening area—and, hopefully, from you—we are building a community online where creative people can come together to find, discuss, create and react to art.

What's on the site?

Featured stories
These are reports on arts and culture issues from KERA staff and from our community partners. We hope you'll leave comments about these stories, share them with friends, or continue conversation about them on the Art&Seek blog.
Art&Seek blog
Here's where we hope you'll join us in conversation about the arts in North Texas. Feel free to let us know what you think about what you see posted here. You'll also see links to other notable blogs and media which regularly report on arts and culture.
Art&Seek calendar
You can search our calendar to find out what's going on in the arts in North Texas. We have the categories you'd expect—theater, dance, music and visual arts for example. And some you might not, like workshops and classes, arts advocacy, auditions, and events at libraries and universities.

If you want your group represented on the Art&Seek calendar:
First, create an organization profile.
Then, submit events.
Or give us a call on the Art&Seek hotline, 214.740.9275.
NPR arts headlines
These are arts related stories from National Public Radio.
Flickr group
Here you can share photos and video that depict creative life in North Texas. We're new to Flickr so we welcome your suggestions and feedback about this site.

Who's putting this together?

In addition, we have many volunteers and supporters, from arts organizations participating in the calendar to freelance writers who helped us create organization profiles to the Dallas band Shibboleth, who composed our theme music.

Who's paying the bills?
Art&Seek was established thanks to Donna Wilhelm, the Denton Appleton Baldwin fund, The Allen and Kelli Questrom Foundation and KERA members. Becoming a member of KERA will help the station continue to support projects like Art&Seek.

Will there be more?
Yes! We plan to add many more features to Art&Seek in the coming months, so please check back to see what's new.
