Welcome to Keep Your Eyes Open- the online home for NARC. magazine and a whole new approach to local journalism
KYEO.tv was set up in 2010 to bridge the gap between the high-end music and arts publications, and quick, accessible online information. Part magazine, part guide and focused on video, kyeo.tv is a an experimentation into the new forms of journalism starting to be embraced by the traditional press. With over 6 million hits a year, 36,000 unique users and over 50,000 page views per month, the website is aimed at demystifying the arts scene in the North East – helping people understand creativity in the region isn’t for ‘those kinds’, but something that can be of value to all.
And now, thankfully, we’ve combined with NARC. Magazine - a monthly music and arts magazine for the North East. Set up in 2006, it has built up a reputation for knowledgeable and high quality content. Focusing heavily on the local scene and championing creative businesses in the North East, NARC. is the first stop for all things musical in the region. Fresh and unique to the area in format, content and aesthetic, NARC. prides itself on its occasionally alternative, but always interesting and informative, angle. Since the partnership with KYEO.tv, NARC. has branched out into a wider editorial remit, featuring the best the North East has to offer in film, theatre, comedy and art. Our readers are switched-on, socially aware and hungry for information.
NARC. offers something a website can never do – the chance to sit down, have a brew, and take your time reading the ins-n-outs of the North East creative culture.
