Public Broadcasting in Public Places is a groundbreaking digital initiative which brings prime-time national PBS programming to audiences through interactive kiosks. Each kiosk features an interactive touch screen with specially edited clips.


Installation Sites

The kiosks premiered at the Grantmakers in Film + Electronic Media Opening Plenary at the Council of Foundations Fall Conference for Community Foundations in San Francisco.  The kiosks were featured installations in locations across California including: the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles; the California Museum of History, Women and the Arts in Sacramento; the Price Charities Civic Complex in San Diego;  Goggle’s corporate headquarters in Mountain View; the 2008 International Ecological Farming Conference in Pacific Grove; the Grace Hudson Museum in Mendocino; Santa Cruz County Fair; and the Center for Sustainable Agroecology at UC Santa Cruz.
