A platform for intersectional TV. Formerly "Open TV (beta)"

About


OTV | Open Television is a platform for intersectional television.

OTV’s mission is R&D (research and development):

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT: We prioritize helping artists develop their projects from production to release. Our primary function is support. We offer financing, consultation, and referrals in order to get projects through to completion. We also help artists establish a plan and trajectory for their careers and works. We only develop artists in Chicago.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: We provide a space for different communities to come together to experience culture, have critical conversations about identity, and meet people across social networks. Chicago is our primary community, followed by national and global communities united by intersectionality.

RESEARCH: All activities provide for data to help us understand how to develop intersectional art and TV. This data is published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals and books. More general findings are published in annual development reports for the public and industry.
