“Eternal Telethon: 55+” will broadcast non-stop from 1:00pm on April 28th through the evening of May 1st. The broadcast can be watched live online at EternalTelethon.com and will feature a wide range of creative contributions from over 150 artists.

An ongoing series of collectively-organized live web-casts, the Eternal Telethon raises money to create a convalescent home for retired and ailing artists in need of a break. The telethon functions both as a showcase for artists to present new, experimental work in a low-pressure environment, as well as a demonstration of how a community can effectively define its needs and empower itself.

Below is the schedule, subject to change.
