When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the world, and more specifically the artist community, it left millions of people who were actively creating a living through their art with few options to sustain themselves. Many of them have adapted to things the best they can. What seemed to be lacking in this “new way of things” was a place for artists to come together to share their art to an audience that can appreciate the beauty and message of that offering. Many businesses are working on adapting to new and innovative ways to bring in dollars to their events. Because of this, many artists were left out of online event bookings. And the Be Well Festival was born with a 12-hour-a-day schedule and a 12-hour replay creating the 24/7 schedule. The Be Well Festival was a platform that helped to create the abundance needed for our artist community without a commercial mindset and the goal of profit. The Be Well Festival was open to all types of artists and amassed a library of over 400 artists from all over the world who performed from their launch on June 1st, 2020, to the Finale on December 31st, 2020.
Originally, the Be Well Festival was intended to be a three month long Summer festival. As COVID raged on, it was decided to continue it indefinitely. As we moved into the fourth and fifth months, we developed Public Broadcasting Music Television as the ongoing entity the Be Well Festival would evolve into. PBMTV is a 24/7 online streaming internet television station dedicated to providing a stage for the arts in all its forms to be shared with the world. On January 1st 2021, PBMTV launched its new membership based platform to open ourselves to a larger audience and much more art related content. On August 1st, 2021, 40 years after the launch of MTV, PBMTV brings its new 24/7 streaming platform to the world.
