Truly one of a kind, CDS is the sole university-based institution that teaches, produces, and presents all of the documentary arts for a broad range of people, from emerging and established artists whose work we exhibit or publish to individuals of all backgrounds and ages who have stories to tell and need the tools and skills to do so.
At CDS, we believe that the shortest distance between two people is a story. Help us support many voices, many stories, transforming lives.
