Open TV: developing platforms for indie arts and artists | Aymar Jean Christian | TEDxNorthwesternU

In an increasingly homogenous industry, the Open TV project developed by Northwestern faculty member Aymar Jean Christian offers an alternative by focusing on community, individuality and embracing difference in a break from “traditional” television series.

Aymar is an assistant professor of Communication Studies at Northwestern University, and he is head of development for Open TV, a platform for queer, trans- and cis-women and artists of color.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
