"Supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The MIT Open Documentary Lab (OpenDocLab) conducted an eight-month research project mapping and assessing the dynamics of an ongoing convergence between interactive and participatory documentary practices and digital journalism. The project launched in October 2014 with a convening at MIT, The New Reality: Exploring the Intersection of New Documentary Forms and Digital Journalism.
