From November 2018 through March 2019, AmadorArts ran a series of weekly radio broadcasts called Arts Around Amador. The show explored the meaning of the arts in our community, the importance of arts education in our rural schools, and the local talent working and thriving in Amador County.
Check out some of the episode of Arts Around Amador which ran for 65+ weeks.
Check back in late spring for our 2019 Poetry Out Loud Celebration broadcast!
