MIT & Black Public Media Fellowship


MIT Open Documentary Lab, MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology, and Black Public Media have joined forces to launch a remote, 4-month fellowship for Black filmmakers, journalists, creative technologists, and artists. Eligible applicants must be developing a documentary or nonfiction project using emerging technologies (such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, or robotics) or using "old tech" (projections, multichannel video, console video games, VFX, 3D, etc.) in new and inventive ways. The virtual fellowship runs Sept. 8, 2020, to Jan. 29, 2021.

Applications for this fellowship are now closed. Learn more about our 2020 fellow and her Mapping Blackness project here. Thanks to all who applied.

We are pleased to announce 

Carla Lyndale Bishop

as the inaugural recipient of the
