Transmission Project/Digital Arts Service Corps

Boston, MA

The Transmission Project amplifies the power of public media and technology.

Our vision is a robust and diverse media ecology enabling a world built upon the full participation of society.

For nearly ten years, we have worked to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations that use media and technology to strengthen communities. The Transmission Project fulfills its mission by supporting a diverse network of partner organizations that provide services to benefit communities nationwide.

Our primary initiative is the Digital Arts Service Corps. The Transmission Project builds the strength and community impact of partner organizations such as low-power radio stations, media arts centers, rural broadband initiatives, and media reform policy advocates by supporting specific capacity-building projects through the recruitment and placement of a full-time, on-site AmeriCorps*vista member.
