Open Signal empowers the people of Portland to make effective use of media for creative expression, cultural exchange and civic participation.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we provided media training, TV production and community engagement to more than 5,000 youth and adults at our center, at schools and in partnership with other nonprofits. We broadcast 943 new and locally produced programs in six languages to over 400,000 homes via five cable channels.
"I am an enrolled member of the Klamath Tribe. We have a lot of stories, legends and history to tell. The people here make me feel comfortable to ask questions as I learn more about media. Open Signal has definitely changed my life!”
