Alaska Live

Schedule varies (Due to COVID-19, KUAC is unable to produce live Alaska Live broadcasts until such time that the global pandemic no longer poses a significant threat to life.)

The Alaska Live series of live performance and conversations with visiting and local artists is made possible from a generous grant from Design Alaska and contributors like you.

Alaska Live archives are available on this page and more about Alaska Live TV and episodes can be found at
