MIT & Black Public Media Visiting Artist Program

In 2020, Black Public Media (BPM), MIT Open Documentary Lab (ODL), and MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (MIT CAST) created the MIT & Black Public Media Visiting Artist Program to support Black creatives who use emerging technology as their medium for documentary and nonfiction storytelling. Typically, our participants are filmmakers, artists, journalists, or creative technologists. The mission of this joint program is to support and develop the emerging-tech storytelling skills of makers who are underrepresented within creative technology industries and to bring visiting artists into community with like-minded storytellers.
