TMY Virtual

A moment of exchange, TMY 2019. Photo by Steven Meckler
Curated ONLINE conversations, demonstrations, and concerts celebrating folk arts, foodways, and performing arts. 

Throughout October

We’re taking it to the screen, of course, for safe and intimate conversations, demonstrations, and performances. Listen to folk artists, musicians, dancers, food producers, cooks, and others on how they keep culture and heritage alive in Tucson. Plus nearly 40 concerts from TMY dancers and musicians, recorded in home studios or in spectacular Southern Arizona locations.

You can view events at their scheduled streaming time on the TMY homepage or later on our TMY Videos 2020 page. To interact with others during the live streaming, you can watch on TMY’s Facebook page or TMY’s YouTube Channel.

Most TMY virtual events will be interpreted by ASL interpreters or closed captioning and will be available in both Spanish and English.
