The Loop Lab

Cambridge Arts Council

Funding Received: 2017
Cambridge, MA
$250,000
Funding Period: 2 years and 3 months

 

The Loop Lab (TheLoopLab.org), is a non-profit social enterprise that provides workforce development in audio/video skills for 18-26-year-olds from underrepresented backgrounds in Cambridge. 

 

We support that mission with our media workshop that specializes in digital storytelling through video and audio, with trainees and alumni often working on these projects. Video content is often a gap in how non-profits communicate about their organizations and impact in the communities they serve. With that in mind, our for-hire services are on a case by case basis, built with the organization as a partner, and we often extend discounts to non-profits with unusually limited resources. We do our best to work with an organization to put together something that meets their mission, their needs, and their budget.
