Darlington Media Group is managed by artists and community activists who contribute substantial voluntary time to the project.
We rely on the support of users to both manage the project, and help keep us on an even financial keel. Since our foundation in 1983, we have ensured that participation in the running of DMG is accessible to anyone. You can join as an individual, or affiliate as a group, for £10.30 annually. This gives you the right to attend our annual meeting and vote on all issues relating to our running. To encourage participation we ask all users of our equipment to first make this commitment. Members also receive regular mailings and invitations to exhibition openings and other events.
If you would like to make a larger contribution to Darlington Media Group, we now accept support in three ways:
* You can pay a lifetime subscription of a minimum of £250.
* If you are a rich benefactor who happens to support our aim of giving a voice to the less powerful, please send your donation to us at Darlington Media Workshop.
* If like us you have skills and little money, please come along to the workshop during opening hours to discuss how you can help DMG prosper. Or us the contact form.
DMG celebrated its official 25th anniversary in 2008. The original founding members are getting somewhat long in the few teeth they have left. We hope that a new generation of media activists (or hactivists?) are preparing to take us over!
Meanwhile, a big thanks to all those young and old members and supporters who have, and still do, put so much time and effort into the project.
