TV Dinner was the media task force of Metro Justice for more than two decades, and chronicled many of Metro Justice’s activities, including racial justice, reproductive choice, utility issues, and the ongoing struggle for universal healthcare. Founded in 1987, TV Dinner ran video training workshops, film screenings, community art events and organized a weekly cable access television program.
In Summer 2022, Metro Justice gifted the TV Dinner archive to VSW. This extensive collection of over 1,200 videotapes include produced programs, community reports, documentation of civic events, speeches, rallies, confrontations and celebrations created and collected by Metro Justice members. This program features selections from the TV Dinner archive selected and presented by original TV Dinner producers Nancy Rosin and Ruth Cowing.
The VSW Salon is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
