Ask me about accessibility.

I teach a slough of media education courses and help create trainings and curriculums focused on technical skill-building and equitable education practices for instructors, volunteers, and partnerships. I have worked in media arts education for over a decade and can help you find the education path at Open Signal that best fits your goals.

I also currently serve on the board of directors at KBOO Community Radio, earned a BFA in Filmmaking and Social Justice at Evergreen State College and produce a music television show in the vein of Soul Train at Open Signal.

David Koesters Distribution & Media Services dkoesters@opensignalpdx.org

I provide technical assistance to producers, monitor and schedule the Open Signal channels, and ensure your shows air properly.

Ask for me when you need help uploading a show, have questions in the studio or about the equipment, or anything regarding distribution or media services. If I don't know the answer, I will do my best to connect you with someone that does.

My background includes broadcasting, the military and law. I also make cartoons; animation is my outlet and refuge.

We encourage the creation and sharing of content that expresses a wide variety of cultural, social, political and spiritual perspectives. Treating all people with respect and kindness is expected - even if you don’t agree with all perspectives.

We require all members of our community to agree to our Safer Space Community Guidelinessafety policies and to be accountable for the impact of their actions on others who use the space.
