Schedule a Field Trip and Studio Tour

Come visit our state-of-the-art facilities, including our production studios, edit suites, and recording booth, among other professional equipment.

A school field trip to MetroEast Community Media showcases the world-class technical and creative resources available right here in Gresham, as well as the history of community media and our strong connection to free speech. We pair Orientation with a free Studio Camera class that gives students hands-on practice with industry-standard equipment, including cameras and studio switchers. This unique and exciting experience immediately certifies students to volunteer on staff- and member-produced shows, as well as priming students to take their media production education to the next level!

Ask about our non-profit membership to outfit your entire class with access to intermediate and advanced classes and equipment access. Get your students involved in content creation and media literacy!
