Public access television stations like UpNorth TV can be found all across Michigan in places where people care about their communities and the civil exchange of ideas. Like an electronic park, public access stations give citizens time and space for public expression - a place to celebrate what's special about the community and engage others in the discussion. Unlike shows on commercial television, these presentations can provide more detail on community history, politics, culture, and local activities.
Public access television is also an educational resource for young and old. By making our own videos, we learn how video is created and used; we become more media-savvy. Ultimately, UpNorth TV offers all of us a unique place to share information and viewpoints, providing a bit of balance to the sound bites, glitz and salesmanship of the commercial media. We encourage everyone to participate in this creative process of making or viewing true community video.
