TV Takeover

It’s a live TV show. It’s an event. You’re invited!

TPT is partnering with four Twin Cities arts organizations for season two of TV Takeover! This April, partners will “take over” TPT’s air and studio for one-hour! Each broadcast event is uniquely curated by that week’s partner/curator – featuring art, media, dance, music and drinks. You won’t want to miss it! Tickets are not yet available so stay tuned for updates! Scroll down to learn about our new partners, watch episodes from last season and more.

TV Takeover is a project of Rewire, a TPT initiative focused on bringing public media to life for a new generation. TV Takeover is supported in part through an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding is provided by the Lowertown Future Fund (LRC Fund).
