dojoTV is a grassroots media-creating initiative that emerged from Chicago's DIY venue The Dojo.

Focused on pushing DIY & underground culture forward, dojoTV aims to amplify marginalized voices, rethink representation in media, and explore new media methods.

dojoTV's Live Series is a site-specific live music video series

Drawing inspiration from NPR' Tiny Desk Concert , The Blogotheque, and Chicago's own JBTV, The Dojo's natural progression into media involves live music.

The Live Series bi-annually partners with different  Chicago art spaces and develops a live performance concept with the artists it partners with. dojoTV's first Live Series featured three artists at The Dojo's former DIY space.

This spring, dojoTV is releasing its second installment partnered with art space Hostel Earphoria featuring seven performances. 

Check out the entire series and a little details about how it all went down.

Donate & Support

dojoTV is at the beginning stages of establishing itself. Below are the projects that could use financial support. If you have any kind of resources to support any of these projects please reach out or donate. Check it!

The Live Series: After two seasons of dojoTV's Live Series, we've run our favor list dry, and it is now time to hire and pay videographers what they are worth. We're looking for financial, catering, and/or gear support as we begin to collaborate with higher profile locations.

dojoTV Culture Coverage: Video gear support & partnered platforms can help us build out the media representation of culture and community events that often get overlooked.

Multi-cam live streaming: Preach Improv's show at iO Theatre has been selling out every weekend. In an effort to further amplify their radical take on improv & performance we plan to live stream their final shows of their run à la SNL with multiple cameras & an audio mix. However, due to the poor financial infrastructure for comedians in Chicago, we are looking for financial & equipment resources for four shows during the month of July 2018.

Artist Music Videos: In order to support emerging artists, we want to provide music video services for artists who cannot afford to hire a video team themselves. With outside financial support to hire a professional crew, we can help artists pursue their craft and be less capital-driven. Our first video is being filmed in June with little-to-no resources other than equipment support with The Dojo's own Mykele Deville.
