Marin Ventures

This month in our Georgia Annwell Gallery Space, we are proud to display selected artwork from San Rafael's Marin Ventures program.

Please feel free to visit the exhibit any time during our normal business hours.

Exhibit Reception: Friday, May 11 at 6 PM

For the past 25 years, Marin Ventures has been striving to help intellectually and developmentally disabled adults seek independence, personal growth, and community integration. Instructors provide participants with the opportunity to work in a variety of mediums, including drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, textiles, photography, and videography.

Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels & Community Media Centers like Marin TV

UPDATE August 2019
The FCC voted 3-2 (R-D) to approve the draft order 621 today. That was no surprise. The final order will be released in about a week - we'll know more then. Some interpretation of the order as it now stands:

1) FCC commissioner O’reilly pushed hard for PEG transport fees (use of fiber line between PEG and Cable operator) to be deducted from Franchise Fees (FF) - this may included in the final order. If so - CMCM could be charged for our connection to Comcast used to deliver the channels.

2) Values determined by cable companies for iNets and free cable drops will now be deducted from FF. This has no impact on CMCM since AT&T eliminated those public benefits 10 years ago when they passed the CA State Video Franchise (DIVCA). Note: Having decimated PEG in 21 states, AT&T has since ceased their rollout of U-Verse and now sells satellite TV service.

Support Marin TV This Holiday Season!

"Giving Tuesday" starts the Holiday Giving Season. Please consider helping us grow Marin TV as a vital source for local media!

The Community Media Center of Marin has been working hard for over 7 years, starting as a scrappy DIY Media Center to become an increasingly vital resource to the residents of Marin. With our Marin TV channels, we are an enabler for government transparency, bringing your local and county government officials right into your living room. Our educational channel gives you learning resources you can’t get elsewhere and provides our schools and students a vehicle for sharing their projects with the community. Our community channel gives everyone in Marin a voice without the threat of censorship. It’s truly the only First Amendment TV. And our media center gives all residents the training they need to produce their own programs with free access to the tools of production and distribution. The center also provides a space where Marin artists come to share their work, films, and voices with the community.
