Guiding Values for TV Santa Barbara
The sharing of ideas and information helps to build understanding and common values within a community. TVSB provides means for diverse communities to tell their stories, hear each other’s stories, and create new stories together. By providing virtual and physical spaces for individuals and organizations to come together, we create pathways to collaborate, to empower relationships, and to strengthen our community.
In contrast to commercial media, TVSB provides a welcoming environment within our local media ecosystem for expression of a variety of perspectives, viewpoints and beliefs, including those from underrepresented segments of the population. We embrace our community’s ability to share ideas.
TVSB provides everyone in our community with access to media production technology for the creation, sharing, and consumption of knowledge and ideas. We offer services to all regardless of production experience, income, education, gender identity, ethnicity, physical ability, language, beliefs or any other characteristics.
Creativity is vital to the soul of the community and every individual. TVSB fosters a safe environment for the development and expression of ideas.
TVSB operates as a trusted community partner with integrity, open communication and practices.
