About Open Signal

With a commitment to creativity, technology and social change, Open Signal makes media production possible for everyone. We provide skills, equipment and inspiration, amplifying local voices on five cable channels.

Partnerships and Resource Sharing

Partnerships with nearby schools, fellow non-profits and community organizations make up the heart of Open Signal and vary depending on the needs and goals of each organization. We believe in sharing resources for the greater good with partners that further our mission. We offer in-school, after-school and weekend instruction on digital storytelling, equipment lending, discounted trainings and more!
