Community and Youth Projects

LIFT provides a space for communities to produce representations on their own terms. Each community collaboration works with LIFT’s professional equipment, facilities and member resources to assist social justice, education, arts and other non-profits in training their constituents to make media and produce the media content they need within often limited budgets.

LIFT accepts project and partnership inquiries from non-profit organizations and collectives on an ongoing basis. One-off projects are welcome as schedules and budgets permit, however LIFT is primarily interested in cultivating long-term partnerships with other organizations and collectives. These engagements can include capacity building consulting for emerging groups and project management along with LIFT equipment, facilities, instructors and mentors.

LIFT welcomes requests from all organizations sharing its values of social justice and freedom of expression, however only a small portion of projects can be accepted in any year.

 

Please allow 4 to 12 weeks for an evaluation of your proposal, depending on its complexity and current workload.
 
For more information about collaborating with LIFT or to arrange private and group workshops, please contact our outreach department.
