DCAT'S MISSION: DCAT encourages communication and participation in public life by providing media tools, media education, and media distribution systems to the community.
As a DCAT member, you are part of the continuing effort to create local, community-building, free speech television. Public access gives you and your neighbors the opportunity to inform, entertain, and speak out for yourselves, in your own words. Unlike broadcast television and commercial cable services that deliver programs to you, public access is programming by and for you. You pick the topic, you write the script, you run the camera, and you edit the video.
Today, thousands of public access channels exist on cable systems across the country. The channels are as diverse as the communities they serve. They, like us, are discovering and creating the resource public access provides: Television by and for the community.
Durango Community Access Television is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3 organization that broadcasts on Bresnan cable channel 22. DCAT does not sell advertising or programming time. Instead we rely on memberships, donations, grants and underwriting from the community, businesses, foundations, the City of Durango, and La Plata County. You can help. Click on the Donate link to your left to make your donation to community television.
Like a public library, public access television is a public good that benefits the overall community by ensuring that everyone has access to the tools for literacy in today's digital age. This forum for community expression helps realize the free-speech goals of the First Amendment.
The means of communication are changing and we as citizens need to ensure we have access!
DCAT, Bresnan, and the City of Durango, and are prohibited by law from controlling the content of public access programs, and are not liable for any material cablecast on public access channels. Public access users and producers are solely responsible and have complete control of the content of their programs.
