Background:
"Alive From Off Center" was established in 1985 as a production of KTCA (St. Paul - Minneapolis) . The show featured independent works by artists in a variety of media. Its showcase format was similar to the Workshop's "New Television" series. At some point the series changed its name to "ALIVE TV." Many works created by or for the Workshop were also shown on "Alive From Off Center." Additionally, some Workshop produced pieces were coproduced and/or commissioned by KTCA specifically for the series. Susan Dowling served as Executive Producer for these programs.

Scope:
Contains moving-image materials and documentation relating to programs created by the Workshop that aired as part of "Alive From Off Center."

An incomplete set of 3/4" tapes of "Alive From Off Center" that do not feature works affiliated with the New Television Workshop have been archived as part of the Reference Tape series.
