UnionDocs efforts don’t tire, they activate; creating compulsions, itches that must be scratched, confusions that must be explored, contradictions which we must struggle to understand, new experiences to which we must adapt. Documentary Art is only becoming more interesting, complicated, and vital. Meanwhile, is the culture of face-to-face public discourse and engagement becoming more rare? As a form of rapid, evolving response, UnionDocs is in a productive spot.

Last year, we had our best audiences for events ever and supported more artists than before. We experimented with workshops for professionals each month that explored a wide variety of ideas and practices. We produced 7 new films with the Collaborative Studio and highlighted them in a neighborhood-wide celebration. We ran the second successful installment of the 5 week Summer Documentary Intensive. Living Los Sures was called “a model for art institutions to engage with their community” and is now touring to festivals and universities and part of the “Greater NY” exhibition at PS1.

Of course, our work is on your behalf. That is, the community is the motivator. The artists and intellects inspire, yes of course, but so do audiences, workshop participants, fellows, advisers, board members, volunteers, and late night halloween party dance kings and queens. Luckily, these categories overlap. Luckily, new people constantly enter the mix. Let’s not forget the energy and effort of the staff at the center of all this activity; a team so small that it regularly shocks those who know the scope of UnionDocs programs. For these relationships, we are grateful!

Our holiday fundraiser has membership and t-shirts, totes, posters, dvds, comics, and space rentals on offer. Are we adding a gift shop? Not just yet. But it has been fun to design and create these unique little rewards for your support. If you can, please consider pitching in.

To get these objects in time for festive moments of object exchange, do so quickly!
