Laptop on Desk

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the deepening NYC Covid-19 health crisis, and its impact on MNN staff and operations, all MNN facilities will be closed to community producers, students and the general public from January 15, 2021 until further notice.


MNN is now open for business and is serving our community with onsite media production and media education courses. Many in our community of media makers have been safely and successfully been creating programming at our 59th Street Studios and El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center for some time now.  Learn all about the MNN facilities and equipment available for reservation and how we’re working to keep you safe while you create your media in our spaces by reading about MNN's reopening procedures here. 

For those producers that are not ready to make the trip to our facilities we offer a host of online media making opportunities that will keep you making media at MNN.
