DCTV – Downtown Community Television

DCTV believes that expanding public access to the electronic media arts invigorates our nation’s democracy. Founded in 1972 by Jon Alpert and Keiko Tsuno, DCTV has fostered a diverse and inclusive media arts community for 40 productive years. DCTV pursues its educational mission by introducing members of the community to the basics of electronic media through hundreds of free or low-cost production courses and access to broadcast-quality production equipment.

From humble beginnings (DCTV’s first educational projects operated from the back of a dilapidated mail truck), DCTV has established a community-based foothold in a field dominated by large corporations. From its headquarters in a landmark firehouse in downtown New York City, DCTV serves individuals who could not otherwise afford a media arts education.

DCTV is the most honored independent nonprofit media center in the nation. Its productions, reaching millions of viewers each year, have received two Academy Award Nominations, 16 National Emmy Awards, 3 duPont-Columbia Awards, and every other major award in the television field. In recognition of DCTV’s artistic integrity and social commitment, the organization was awarded a highly competitive National Endowment for the Arts “Leadership Projects for the Millennium” grant.

While DCTV’s impact is measured nationally and internationally, its local roots remain strong. DCTV complements its own artistic achievements by working to extend the tools of television and electronic media production to a broader, more diverse set of artists. Toward this end, over the past 40 years DCTV has taught over 50,000 students, most of them members of low-income and minority communities, the essentials of television production. DCTV offers over 150 low-cost video and electronic media training workshops to 2,000 students a year. DCTV’s members rely on DCTV’s facilities to produce new and innovative work that truly reflects the points of view of all constituents in our society.
