Deproduction Announces New Public Access/CTC Consulting Grant

Knight News Challenge Award Winners
In 2008, Deproduction was the recipient of a Knight News Challenge grant aimed at a long-term goal of helping Public Access TV stations and Community Technology Centers better cooperate as a nation-wide user-driven network. At the core of this grant is the collection and implementation of a set of open-source tools developed by DOM and others aimed at expanding the role of the community and streamlining much of the workload of a Public Access station or CTC.

Throughout 2008, Deproduction will continue updating and developing the various Drupal modules used in the User-Automated operation of Denver Open Media, while integrating them with other Drupal modules developed by our partners across the Public Access community.

By early 2009, Deproduction will make these tools available via Drupal.org for Public Access stations and CTCs to implement. For those organizations requiring support, Deproduction will select a group of beta-test sites to receive comprehensive consulting, implementation, and training services. Organizations interested in applying to be one of the initial test-sites can complete our application form beginning July 9, 2008, through Nov 9, 2008.
