CDS has always been home to special initiatives whose goals include the creation of documentary work by, for example, children and youth (Literacy Through Photography, Youth Noise Network); medical professionals (Documenting Medicine); postgraduates (Lewis Hine Documentary Fellows Program); community members (Face Up, Home Made Visible); activists, archivists, and oral historians (Behind the Veil, SNCC Digital Gateway); and artist-producer collaborators (Indivisible, Groundwork).
