Spring Project Applications Open

Spring Project Applications Open

Produce your project with Open Signal equipment and support from our staff!


Do you want to produce a project yourself with our equipment?

We offer members of the public in the Portland Metro area the ability to checkout production equipment kits in exchange for content to distribute on our cable access channels. If you meet the eligibility requirements and the project is accepted (based on capacity), you will sign a content agreement and be checked-out a production equipment kit for the duration of your project. At the time of check-out you will be given a quick orientation and run-down on the equipment in your kit.

Applications for Spring are open February 3rd through February 17th, with production support taking place April 1st through June 30th.

Open Signal is a Safer Space

Open Signal is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for the community. Open Signal is a Safer Space for people of color, immigrants, gender non-conforming, low/no income groups, houseless, people with disabilities, linguistically diverse and other marginalized communities who have experienced systemic racism, sexism, classism and/or oppression. 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. Physical and verbal abuse will not be tolerated. All threats will be taken seriously, and will result in removal from the facility.

If you have a safety concern to report, please talk to any member of our front desk staff, or complete our online form at bit.ly/opensignalsafetyconcern.
