ALIVE TV SEASON 12

TRANSCENDING OUR TIMES

It is no secret that people all over the world are feeling overworked, underpaid, and afraid of the future gone is the rampaging optimism of years past. The twelfth season of ALIVE TV celebrates work that transcends that fear. Embracing difficulty and championing rebirth, these artists forge a new kind of future. ALIVE TV has always relied on the vision of artists to point a way forward and this year is no exception. From the wounded self to the wounded world, from fractured family to fractured nations; this work speaks to us through its unflinching portrayal of challenges overcome through sheer human spirit.
