Interrupt This Program is a Canadian documentary series, which premiered November 6, 2015 on CBC Television.[1] It is known as Resilient Cities in some markets.[2]

A five-part documentary series about the role of art as a tool of political protest and social change, each episode centres on the creative community in a world city recovering from some form of social crisis, such as war, disaster or political upheaval.[3] The episodes are set in Beirut, Kiev, Athens, Port-au-Prince and Medellin. Each episode profiles several young artists working in the city, including at least one expatriate Canadian.[4] The series aims to change perceptions about the cities and allow artists to tell their own stories.[5]
