MTN Closed July 1st through July 4th

Hello Producers! MTN will be closed July 1st to July 4th. We will be open Wednesday July 5th.

Enjoy your break!  

MTN is offering two ACM Conference scholarships!


The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) is hosting their annual conference in Minneapolis this year July 12-14. Learn more about the conference here. This year’s theme is “Rivers to Cross”, which addresses the call to rise up against challenges in making media created for, by, and about marginalized populations and harnessing the voices of all voices. Community Media Stations throughout the country have reached a pivotal juncture. This conference will help improve connections with other media organizations and make all community media stations into 21st-century media centers to improve lives, build common understandings, and grow economic opportunities, so all citizens have the right to participate in the life of the community.


MTN will be offering two scholarships for MTN Producers at this event. To be selected for the $375 scholarship please email us your name, the work you do in community media, with a brief paragraph about why you believe in the MTN Mission: to operate a media center that helps citizens develop skills to increase the social, civic and economic equity in our community via the transformative art of creating and broadcasting media, and how we support your work. To be considered, send emails to Tene@mtn.org, with a subject heading "ACM SCHOLARSHIP" by 5pm on Friday, July 7th, 2017.



MTN is a media access zone designed to help residents of Minneapolis develop skills to increase the social, civic, and economic equity in our community via the transformative art of creating and broadcasting media.
