The Loop Lab

Empowering women and people of color in the Cambridge area through job training and placement in audio/video and media arts fields.

Located in Cambridge, The Loop Lab (TLL) is a nonprofit social enterprise specializing in media arts internships and digital storytelling. Founded in 2018 by Christopher Hope, it empowers women and people of color in the media arts to develop careers in audio/video through job training and job placement. TLL’s for-hire production studio provides practical experience, income, and entry into the industry and simultaneously generates revenues. In addition to developing technical skills, The Loop Lab is committed to supporting soft skills, life skills, and the spiritual growth of its constituents. It recently opened a second site to expand its programming and has quickly grown from serving five to ten young people at a time to more than 50. TLL has established strong ties to the technology sector based in Cambridge and will draw on these relationships to support continued growth.
