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.
#OTVLIVE is our channel on the OTV App that features LIVE-to-tape programming from artists, activists and more. Each LIVE-to-tape broadcast features a uniquely designed program that engages audiences through news or information, education or how-tos, experimental, talk show and performance (theatre/dance/music).
