OTV | Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate, distribute, and exhibit artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple identities marginalized by the market and society. OTV experiments with alternative ways to develop, produce, and exhibit art and television. Our programs center artistic expression, intersectionality, Chicago and digital networking.
A network where you can tune into a different queer club night every week.
Over the summer of 2020, CCTV aimed to broadcast Chicago parties, DJs, performers, and organizations that are leading and shaping the way to a brighter future in Chicago. Each broadcast features a party collaboration with different DJs and performers, in an effort to bring the queer nightlife scene into your living room, laptop, or phone screen during the age of the coronavirus pandemic. Tune in for a taste of the queer club scene of Chicago.
