The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies offers courses in writing, photography, radio and new media. It's always a fascinating stop on any Friday Art Walk, or really any day you'd like to get a taste of what is happening in the documentary arts. It's an engaging room. The walls are always lined with compelling photo essays and the room to the right usually is playing interesting video storytelling projects. The Institute has grown quite a bit from its formative years putting out a simple magazine in the 70's. It seems like lots of changes... for the better.
