The goal of this initiative is to provide a space for individuals with a visual impairment to gather and share information.

Join us every Saturday at 10:00 p.m. to hear TIC's new program, "Stories of Music Artists" by TIC Volunteer, John Pizzi! What is this show about?! We'll let John explain:
“Hey my friends, I hope you will join me for “Stories of Music Artists” here on TIC. The show will “turn print into sound” by featuring discussions from various writings on various music artists, as well as, talking music in general. Simply, we’ll be telling their stories and talking their music. In addition, the show will occasionally feature guests to talk about this together. For sure, it will be music and human interest informative and include some fun. I’m looking forward to talking about all of this here on TIC!” - Johnny Pizzi
