Antenna::Signals is a multimedia cultural program conceived as a quarterly ‘live-action magazine’ and accompanying publication, podcast series, and short documentary series. All of the Signals elements highlight the local cultural producers and thinkers who shape the cultural landscape of New Orleans, with each installation focusing on a specific theme. You can see past issues here! In the face of the continuing COVID-19 crisis, Antenna is bolstering Signals multimedia elements instead of live-events. Issue::018 Retention will drop on December 21st.
