Civic Media Center

The Civic Media Center (CMC) is Gainesville’s “infoshop,” an alternative library of non-corporate media and progressive community organizing space.

The CMC hosts a wide variety of arts events and programming, from our weekly Monday Night Movie documentary film screenings and Thursday Night Poetry Jam, to our monthly Artwalk installations, open mic Art & Music Jam on the first and third Friday of each month, and a kaleidoscope of different music shows, from acoustic to hip hop to punk, and everything in between.

We are available to book all sorts of different events, including grassroots activist group meetings, workshops, talks, and lectures, visual and performance art events, and d.i.y. shows for local, regional, national, and international music acts.
