ARCAN Arkansas Citizens Access Network


Unprecedented access to state government

AR-CAN – the Arkansas Citizens Access Network – provides unprecedented livestream access to state government, giving Arkansas citizens a front-row seat to legislative proceedings, board and commission meetings, and other government hearings and activities. AR-CAN serves as an important educational tool, allowing students to see their government at work while learning about public affairs and civic responsibility.

AR-CAN is presented by Arkansas PBS.

How are meetings selected for coverage?

The goal of AR-CAN is to provide as many livestreaming events as possible, allowing constituents to choose what to watch. For legislative hearings, the livestream is provided by the House of Representatives or Senate. Additionally, AR-CAN will host streaming for any other state agency, board or commission meeting if the stream is provided. A professional team with livestreaming equipment is available to attend meetings; however, due to limited resources, only those events deemed to have the most public interest will be covered. Suggestions for events to be livestreamed on AR-CAN are encouraged.
