The Cascadia Underground is proud to support NW Community Radio in and around the Pacific Northwest. Below you will find information for the Puget Sound Community Radio Cohort, as well as the Northwest Region of the Community Media Alliance, which are working to create a citizen and grassroots based alternative to corporate media and news. Many of these radio stations are part of the Lower Power FM movement, and resulted from the FCC opening up thousands of licenses in 2013 for non-commercial educational users.
With a commitment to creativity, technology and social change, Open Signal makes media production possible for everyone. They provide skills, equipment, inspiration and we amplify local voices on five cable channels. Open Signal is a media arts center in Portland, Oregon. Building upon the 35-year legacy of Portland Community Media.
The Alliance for Community Media: Northwest Region
Northwest Region represents and advocates on behalf of all media creators and providers including videographers, musicians, graphic designers and Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) cable TV access organizations, community media centers, and access producers throughout the Cascadia Bioregion, including Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Founded initially as a group to support PEG organizations, the inclusion of digital media providers resonates with us on issues like net neutrality, broadband access and the distribution and (protection/production) of artists’ work everywhere through.
