Since 2015, "Articulate" has informed and uplifted audiences with stories of how creative thinking shapes our world. Through interviews, live performances, and distinctive storytelling, the Emmy® Award-winning magazine series has earned its reputation as a one-of-a-kind window into the ideas and experiences of diverse artists, from authors and architects to musicians and dancers.

Season 6 of "Articulate" will transport audiences to a Swiss music hall, unpack our understanding of monumental sculpture, and playfully explore a theory of automobile design named for iconic West Side Story gangs the Jets and the Sharks. Featured guests include Tony Award-winning Broadway composer Jason Robert Brown, MacArthur “genius” choreographer Liz Lerman, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, and acclaimed operatic soprano Angel Blue.

Reflecting on making television during a pandemic, "Articulate" host Jim Cotter said, “Throughout 2020, the Articulate team has continued to find new, safe ways to work. Because of this, 'Articulate' is able to offer viewers answers and solace during these unprecedented times with original perspectives on where we’ve been, who we are, and what we might become.”

A new "Articulate" website, launching in December 2020, will include a searchable directory of high school lesson plans based on "Articulate" segments. Created for use in physical and virtual classrooms, the plans integrate the arts and creative problem-solving into STEM, ELA, and social studies instruction.
