Founded in 1992, Termite TV is a Philadelphia-based video collective whose mission is to facilitate the creation and distribution of alternative and activist media for Television and the internet. We work collaboratively with artists and communities to create multi-faceted and multi-voiced media which address social and cultural issues and aim to give voice to marginalized groups, to bring art into communities and to engage them in dialogue.
We support through grants and services, media makers who work to effect social change. We assist in sustaining their work.
Some of project goals are:
To increase access to new communication and information technologies.
To enable media makers access to tools to create work
To breakdown the digital divide, the gap between people with effective access to digital and information technology and those with very limited or no access at all.
To emphasize political change and increase political and social awareness and to raise awareness of the need for media literacy and a more public, democratic access to media.
