Media Hour Ltd is a Vermont based nonprofit founded in 2020 by artist Chelsea Knight and developed in conversation with fellow artist Zacry Spears. Media Hour seeks to foster media literacy and support the production of video and media works by artists and community members interested in video production.
Media Hour currently invites artists to reside at the Media Hour studio in Sunderland VT each summer, to produce a television program that airs on local cable access television. Each resident creates one television show, with the technical and educational support of our facility, equipment and production planning. The programs become part of a TV series and Media Hour archive that will air around the state, be exhibited in an art context, and also will be hosted at Media Hour for yearly public screening series. We want to bring increased artistic content to public television around the state, and to engage residents - some of whom will not have prior video experience - in media production. Starting spring 20223 residents will be chosen through a juried application process.
