DEADLINE EXTENDED: Winter '23 Cohort Applications Are Open November 9th – December 5th!

November 09, 2022

Our free production cohorts provide a support system for media makers who are currently working on a project. Work one-on-one with an Open Signal facilitator to determine your project needs — we offer training on video production, equipment kits for check-out, and biweekly check-ins with a dedicated facilitator. We will support you in creating a final project to share out. At the end of the cohort, you’ll upload your project to air on our cable channels. You’ll be able to share your work with over 400,000 homes in the Portland metro area. 

Applications for the Winter ‘23 Production Cohort are open November 9th through November 23rd, 2022 December 5th. Apply here:
