Successfully making cinematic art is challenging, and sustaining a career in the media industry continues to be difficult due to the lack of access to mentors, industry leaders, tools, and strategies necessary in communities outside of major cities.
The Sustainability Labs program serves five mid-career storytellers working in a variety of mediums and focuses on embracing artists’ multiplicities and de-siloing modes of storytelling to provide greater opportunity and access.
Applications are open for U.S.-based creators, artists, directors, and producers looking to change their personal model of creative, financial, and business sustainability. Deadline to apply is July 1st, 2023.
Preference will be given to mid-career artists, storytellers, and creative producers who have completed at least one significant project in at least two disciplines or mediums. Alternatively, applicants who have completed work on a project and are now in significant development in a new medium, form, or format will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
