WCCA TV mission is to EMPOWER Y O U ! More than SOCIAL MEDIA or having someone video tape you.

WCCA TV mission is to EMPOWER Y O U through charitable Community Media !

While there are new and inexpensive ways to produce video, Public Access television facilities still allow people to produce video in a higher quality and shown to a very broad local audience or a targeted audience.

While you can put a video out on YouTube, the chances of it being seen by significant numbers of people is still very small. Commercial platforms ( social media or otherwise ) place their own profit before your interest, they can be intrusive and they are not truly free speech. They often express rights to censor, delete and or terminate post or video. to suit their own bottom line.

WCCA TV provides access it is commercial free, and it is truly PARTICIPATORY MEDIA at it’s highest. All ages, and people of all backgrounds, are welcomed and encouraged to join in the creative fun of building community through electronic media. There are still some financial obstacles to producing video. Although the technology to produce a decent quality video has increase significantly over the years, there are still many people that simply do not have access to the cameras to shoot the video, or to the computers to edit the video, or to the internet to upload the content.

Many Public Access media or television facilities, such as WCCA TV, also provide technology training and media literacy programs to help new producers make quality video productions and to discern most effective messaging. Sometimes these productions are later shown on other channels, such as PBS, or picked up on other platforms supplemental to Public access presentations. This renders a higher benefit to our participants that may not be available to others. Numerous public access volunteer producers and interns often go on to careers in video production, become media specialist, or simply enjoy the creativity of physically networking in a creative collaborative space with other like minded creators. Also WCCA TV curates community media productions as the video art of our time, as historical and cultural artifacts. WCCA is non-commercial (a charitable 501(c)(3))and dedicated to a mission that is inclusive, participatory, free speech ( free from political whim, or corporate retribution ), and to empower the Citizens of our City and beyond.
