Denver Community Media is a blueprint for the future of accessible media production and programming. This inclusive project keeps multimedia content creation in the hands of the community. Denver Community Media serves the residents of Denver, our greater metro area and Colorado neighbors.
Denver Community Media is a project created through the terms of the City & County of Denver’s cable franchise agreements. While the city will oversee the distribution of Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) funds collected by Comcast and CenturyLink that support this project and help create partnerships to grow the new model, the project will be managed by a contracted service provider. A service provider was sought through a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process led by the city’s Purchasing Department. It is expected to be finalized in the first quarter of 2019.
Denver Community Media represents the city’s effort to modernize its public access model. By building a more sustainable foundation for the delivery of multimedia educational and production opportunities to the community, the city is safeguarding access to tools that help people tell their stories in a rapidly evolving media and technology landscape. With the launch of Denver Community Media, the city is formalizing its efforts to build a new program that offers a permanent home for media access, as well as expanded partnerships that will bring new educational and professional opportunities.
