Guidelines to Joining Somerville Media Center

Over hundreds of people have attended our informative orientation with the intention of starting their media making journey.

Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. In this orientation, Somerville Media Center will share with you the knowledge to introduce you to the community media world.

Okay, this sounds great but what are other reasons for joining?


Joining SMC is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people, and get involved in your community. All Somerville residents are encouraged to produce programs that present their point of view, express their creativity, and inform their neighbors.

Any Somerville resident may join SMC as a Community Media Member- for Boston Free Radio and SCATV memberships. For those who are non-residents, you can join through the Creative Collective membership. See specific policies and bylaws related to Membership. For more information, contact the SMC Membership Director here.

To learn more about SMC, public access television, community radio and how to produce your own television or radio show, we encourage you to attend one of our New Member Orientations. The session is free and open to the public. Attendance is required for all new SMC members. You can find our upcoming orientation dates online here.  

Please join SMC and take advantage of low-cost training, free access to media equipment, and staff advice!
