The Co-Creation Studio at MIT Open Documentary Lab is a new initiative at MIT Open Documentary Lab. The studio researches and incubates alternatives to a singular authorial vision, through a constellation of media methods. Co-Creation occurs within communities, across disciplines and sometimes involves algorithms. Co-Creation seeks to transform the systems that perpetuate inequality.
The MIT Open Documentary Lab studies and incubates new forms of documentary storytelling. The lab brings storytellers, technologists, and scholars together to explore new documentary forms with a particular focus on collaborative and immersive storytelling. A center for documentary research, the lab offers courses, workshops, a fellows program, public lectures, and conferences; it incubates experimental projects; and it develops resources and critical discourse. In the spirit of MIT’s open courseware and open source software movements, the Open Documentary Lab is inclusive, collaborative and committed to sharing knowledge, networks, and tools.
