Welcome to JAM – Junction Arts & Media

Imagine a place in the heart of the Upper Valley where you can go for a few hours on a weekend and try out animation, learn video editing, or check out camera or podcast equipment entirely free.  Or, imagine you’re waiting for a table at a local restaurant, and instead of handing your kid your smartphone, you take them next door to enjoy an interactive media arts activity together. Or, perhaps you’re a teen or young adult on a Saturday night – imagine a public place you can go to watch your friend’s band play or find community at a queer movie night, all for $0.  Administered by CATV, the Upper Valley’s public access media community, JAM will embrace our evolving media technology and culture to harness the positive potential of the media arts to build bridges of empathy and strengthen our community bonds.

CATV has been selected for a Vermont Better Places incentive grant to achieve our goal, but we need YOU to help show strong community support to unlock a 2:1 matching grant. Your pledge dollars will be TRIPLED if we meet our goal.  Come JAM with us and help spread the word!

In partnership with WRIF (White River Indie Films), Here in the Valley (HiTV) productions, the Center for Cartoon Studies, Upper Valley Music Center, and many other Upper Valley media arts organizations and artist partners, JAM will be a home for everyone to experience video art installations, community art activities, media arts workshops, live performances, activism, and pop-up outdoor film and music events that enable us to learn from one another, give voice to diverse perspectives, and celebrate our community together.
