A Message to 3rd Ward's Community


We were shocked and saddened to see 3rd Ward close its doors -- even more so, to see artists lose a major resource in their creative lives. It is a blow to all creative communities when one goes down.

DCTV hopes to support displaced 3rd Ward members, instructors, and staff in whatever ways we can, and are offering a complimentary DCTV Membership and a 25% discount on a DCTV Workshop. This is the least we can do. Please email membership@dctvny.org and attach proof of 3rd Ward membership or registration in a 3rd Ward class. You will then be emailed instructions on how to redeem, and a form for you to include any other suggestions you may have on ways we can be of support.

Additionally, if you are interested in teaching opportunities at DCTV, find out more here. We are always seeking freelance instructors for our hands-on adult workshops in Graphic & Web Design, Producing, Production, and Post-Production.

Questions? Feel free to email membership@dctvny.org.
