Event Details

Spend your Mondays this fall at Pulsar Studio, a drop-in media arts program for teens ages 14 to 18.

Pulsar Studio offers you the opportunity to hang out at Portland’s only media arts playground, getting hands-on experience with industry-standard software and equipment and honing your skills alongside professional mediamakers.

Attend as many or as few  sessions of Pulsar Studio as you’d like and gain video production and media art installation skills while collaborating on a public artwork for the Portland Winter Lights Festival.

Certification: Completion of a single session of Pulsar Studio makes you a Software Certified producer, giving you access to Open Signal’s MacBook Pro laptops. Pulsar Studio also certifies you to use Open Signal’s onsite audio recording WhisperRoom booth, check out our Zoom recorders and submit to our cable channels.

Open Signal is committed to serving all members of our community. To ensure that we can meet this commitment, we need to collect data on who participates in our programs.

Open Signal is fully wheelchair-accessible. Reasonable accommodations may be made upon request.


Scholarships are available to students who demonstrate financial need.

Scholarships are reviewed on the 15th of every month and scholarships will be awarded on the 20th of every month. Applicants can apply for one scholarship slot per term, with a maximum of 3 scholarships per calendar year.

Equipment Certification

Open Signal workshops grant certification on the equipment and software taught in the course unless otherwise noted.

Our workshops and equipment are made available to the community at an affordable rate because we want to amplify your voice on our public access cable channels. Join our community of media-makers! We ask that you submit work regularly in exchange for the free use of Open Signal equipment and studios.

Workshops participants must attend ALL workshop sessions order to receive certification. No make-up sessions will be allowed except in cases of emergency. All certified students must complete a brief New Producer Orientation (NPO) before they are given access to our equipment. Students under the age of 18 will need to complete an NPO in the presence of their parent or guardian in order to check out equipment from Open Signal.
