This has been the most challenging year for the Somerville Media Center in our 37-year history. But our strong response to the coronavirus pandemic has shown that the broad array of hyperlocal media that our members and staff produce year round has never been more necessary than it is in times of crisis.
Please donate whatever you are able to in this difficult time to Somerville Media Center today!
SMC’s mission is to provide that vital news, public affairs, and entertainment content in the interest of democracy. We give access to electronic media-making through low-cost media education workshops, equipment and facility access, and collaborative distribution on Somerville Community Access Television, Boston Free Radio and SMC’s web and social media presences. Our SMC Youth Media is an incubator and training ground for media makers of the future and plays an important role for developing engaged media-savvy citizens.
A donation to SMC on Giving Tuesday also directly supports SMC’s vibrant youth media programs. These include our drop-in Makerspace Mondays workshops, 6-week intensive Workshop Wednesdays, summer camps and other incubators for the next generation of video, radio and podcast producers.
