Members of Public Access Meeting Saturday March 11th 2017 at Southern Arizona Video Productions conference room at 911 S. Tyndall Ave. That’s at Park and 19th st. 2pm to 5pm. We will be talking about the current status of Public Access in Tucson now that Access Tucson is not running it!
Its been a little more than a year since the City Council of Tucson closed down Access Tucson. We had served Tucson for over thirty one years as the local public access television station. In this year, I have had many people ask me what what happened to their favorite programs. Where did we go and why were we gone? What happened to our locally focused station and when would we be back? These have all been hard questions to answer. Especially, when pushed for time. And especially since most people were not well informed as to the political pressures we were facing. We could not cover the story, as there is a state law that forbids us, ( the Access Tucson organization) from covering political stories.

As an organization we have spent years helping not for profits develop media to promote themselves. Our classes and workshops have encouraged many Creative Tucsonans to make the jump into media careers or just to communicate more effectively using modern media. Since we’ve resettled to our new office space on Tyndall we’ve been busy. We have continued in these endeavors and launched into some new projects: And, I’m happy to be reporting on our preliminary results. Local Programming : We worked with SAVP(Southern Arizona Video Productions) & KOLD TV to televise the Rodeo Parade again this year. AT Community Media is really happy to be working with the media community to promote events like this whenever we can.

OK this is the deal. IF YOU have a completed NEW program & you want to submit it for inclusion on the website accesstucson.org. You MUST submit it at a monthly Board Meeting(DVD or a link to the appropriate YOUTUBE, VIMEO). We will have Indemnification forms for you to sign at the meeting. Your program will then be transferred(or linked) to the digital library we have set up. We are sorry that at this time no resources for editing are available. It is hoped that we can provide more services to our Members later this year. The Digital Library is a first step to building a new web based channel at the as-yet inactive accesstucson.net. When that site goes up it will be both an on-demand library and a stream of programming including the potential for live broadcast. Members will be allowed to post requests for other members...
