WHO WE ARE:
We are the Chicago Indymedia Video Collective. We operate along the same
lines as Indymedia, fostering the same ideals and processes. We are a
collective of media producers, activists, videographers and concerned
citizens offering your alternative to mainstream corporate coverage of local
and international events, movements and expression. In the summer of 2003
the idea of an independent television show, free from corporate bias and
serving the needs of the community, was conceived. Chicago Independent
Television is the result of that movement.
Our mission is to provide YOUR CORPORATE NEWS ALTERNATIVE.
PLEASE JOIN US!
Our Video Collective meets at 7PM every 1st and 3rd Monday. We often change
