Our mission is to empower our community to make effective use of media for creative expression, cultural exchange, and civic participation, with a focus on communities underrepresented in the mainstream media.
Bottom Line for Portland
Open Signal is the only place in the city of Portland that provides community members and nonprofits with free or low-cost access to the equipment, studios and knowledge to create their own media productions and to share them with the world. We work to amplify the voices and stories of those who are underrepresented in mainstream media because we believe that media is power and that social justice can only be realized when our stories and storytellers reflect the equitable world we wish to create.
Columbia Bank will match the first five $100 donations.
The first 100 donors will be entered into a raffle to win a prize pack including:
- Your very own private drive-in screening in Open Signal's parking lot
- Personal livestream kit, including webcam and stream deck
- Poutine and swag from Potato Champion
“At Open Signal, it’s community first. They open their doors to people at all stages of their creative journey—even to those who don’t consider themselves creatives.” —RaShaunda Brooks, project coordinator for Open Signal Labs
