OTV Strategic Planning

Project: Research project

Project Details


What does an independent, intersectional media organization need to thrive in the digital age? We propose a strategic planning process to research and evaluate the OTV | Open Television research project: its strengths, weaknessess, needs and goals as an independent media non-profit and initiate steps to establish its revenue sources. Funding this project will result in a report from a consultant recommending administrative, organizational and fundraising strategies; an app for TV to lay the foundation to expand audiences and revenue; and a series of engagements outside of Chicago to broaden OTV’s national and global visibility among fans and critical stakeholders (board members, programming partners, festival curators, etc.). OTV | Open Television is a platform for intersectional television. OTV’s mission is R&D. The project develops artists: helping them fundraise, produce and release their projects. It develops community by providing a space for different communities to come together to experience culture, have critical conversations about identity, and meet people across social networks. All activities provide for data for research to help us understand how to develop intersectional art and TV.
