We want to level the playing field for marginalized populations, prepare youth and adults for post-secondary education and empower them to share their stories. 

We collaboratively fundraise with mission-aligned organizations to:

  • Bring Open Signal programs like Echo AiR, Open AiR and Future Forum to their community.
  • Develop unique programs together.
  • Lend equipment and classroom facilities.
  • Offer on-demand trainings for groups to learn video, editing, animation, studio production, experimental media and more.
  • Rent our studios for a production or public screening.
