Supporting Social Justice Documentaries in Progress

The Cucalorus Works-in-Progress (WiP) Lab supports social justice documentaries with a focus on Black storytelling. Co-designed and coordinated by Working Films, participating artists receive feedback on their work-in-progress and explore audience engagement strategies through workshops, consultations, and community screenings during a residency at Cucalorus’ campus. This year’s Lab takes place from September 24th through October 1st, 2023. Now in its 15th year, the Works-in-Progress lab was launched in 2008 through a partnership between Working Films and Cucalorus.
