LA Freewaves Present

Their 2nd & 3rd Panels in their Ongoing Series


Discussions to Create a Mass Media Outlet for the Arts

L.A. Central Public Library

Sunday, September 29, 2002

Los Angeles - On Sunday, September 29, 2002 from 1:00pm until 5:00pm LA Freewaves will host two more public panel discussions in their ongoing series TV or NOT TV: Discussions to Create a Mass Media Outlet for the Arts. They are currently in the middle of a series of eight panel discussions which will culminate during their bi-annual festival which takes place throughout Los Angeles during the entire month of November.

These next two panels, the second and third in the series, explore WEB vs. TV vs. ART and will take place at the L.A. Central Public Library located at 630 W. Fifth Street (at Flower) in downtown Los Angeles ( Both panels are free of charge and open to the public.

For the first time in the festival’s 13-year history, festival organizers are presenting these panels which will bring together alternative media voices, arts and culture stakeholders, technology experts, and media academics laying the conceptual and technical groundwork for a Culture Channel by late 2003.

While the panel discussions are ultimately focusing on launching a Culture Channel, the festival is presenting various innovative works that could potentially air on such a Channel.

This year, choosing the umbrella title TV or NOT TV , the media arts organization is on a serious mission as they unfold their ambitious schedule of public events. The mission: to enable an affordable, dedicated source for the worldwide dissemination of arts and culture. LA Freewaves' Founder and Executive Director, Anne Bray explains, “The matrix of Internet, satellite technology and affordable means of production offer an opportunity to radically reshape the ways in which people experience art. The broadcasting of contemporary arts, especially media and digital arts, is now more than an ideal.”

Please join LA Freewaves on September 29th in downtown LA and in November throughout the entire metropolitan area.  Shape the future.
