At Open Signal you can freely access cameras, production studios, equipment and training to bring your film, stream, or tv production to the screen. We operate with a dedication to those who face barriers to accessing the media arts and industry our country and we know that communities of color, especially Black and Indigenous peoples, our neighbors with disabilities, living with low incomes, and those for whom English is a second language continue to have the least access and opportunity, even in a progressive city like Portland.
“Over the course of five months through Open Signal’s cohort program, I went from having no experience to at the end feeling confident enough to get work as a videographer and create media. By supporting Open Signal, you’re supporting artists like me.”
— Nsayi Matingou, Director/Producer, Speak Your Truth
