What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a wide range of activities that give pleasure or diversion. It can include everything from a crossword puzzle to attending a performance. It can also involve more serious activities such as ceremonies, festivals, satire, and sport. It can even serve as a way of escaping the ordinary and boring in our daily lives.

The word entertainment comes from the Latin inter tenere, meaning β€œto hold inside.” It is related to the Indo-European root ten, which means to stretch or elongate. This makes it a suitable name for an abbreviation of Transformational Entertainment News.

Entertaiment is one of many ways we can meet societal needs and provide for the well-being of our citizens. Learn more about how other groups, individuals and foundations are making a difference.
