Open Signal is a media arts center in Portland, Oregon. We carry a vision for community-driven media focused on creativity, technology and social change.

Open Signal's online streaming website is a central hub for Portland to see itself and be seen.

We highlight work from local, independent media makers and community organizations. We believe in creating people-driven alternatives to mass media—and that media should be available anytime, from anywhere.

We are currently accepting submissions of work to host on the local content section of this website.


  • All work must be locally produced in the greater Portland, OR Area.
  • We request that you share links to work that is already online on one of these public platforms: Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook. 
  • All work submitted must be originally produced and cannot contain copyrighted material or commercial content. 
  • There are no age limitations for submitters. We encourage emerging media makers to submit their work to be featured alongside experienced media makers.
  • We are a youth friendly website. If the content you are submitting is mature* in language or content (anything above PG-13), YOU MUST add a viewer discretion slate to the start of your video that states "The following is intended only for mature audiences.  Viewer discretion is advised." If you do not have a disclaimer then the video will not be on the online video streaming website but can be on our cable channels during safe harbor hours.
  • Content submitted will also be featured on our local cable access channels.  

*Mature content includes: excessive adult language, drugs, or implied use of drugs, sex acts or implied sex acts.


  • Because we host work that is already on a public platform (YT, FB, Vimeo) views of your videos on our website count towards views on your YT, FB or Vimeo.
  • We have an established audience, leading to increased views of your content.
  • You get to show off the brilliant work Portland has to offer :)
