Co-Lab Projects is dedicated to the video and photographic documentation of every exhibition, performance, and project we present. Documentation not only provides artists with a comprehensive record of their work, but is also a way for the community to experience projects after completion, and a way for the space to reach a broader global audience. Video documentation is made for each project, capturing the process of the work, the finished product, and an interview with the artist. At the end of the year these videos are compiled onto a DVD that accompanies a full-color catalog, providing a comprehensive look back at the programming year. The catalog is also used as an outreach tool to connect the work that is being made in the Austin community with collectors, institutions, museums, and galleries nationwide, creating awareness of the Austin art scene and artists.

Risks and challenges
As promised, last year we produced and distributed a 48 page full-color catalog and a 3 hour (chaptered) DVD exhibiting the full breadth of our 2011 programming. We also used additional funds to apply for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status which is in the approval process. Thanks to other private contributions and community support we also expanded the scope of our programming by taking on a new exhibition site (N Space), built a covered deck and serving area, made other considerable improvements to the space, and put together a larger team of young professionals to tackle the new challenges of our growing organization. This year we are aiming even higher by redesigning the dvd/catalog to facilitate the indexing of your collection on the bookshelf and to include the greater number of projects executed this year. With your support Co-Lab Projects will continue to grow and expand our programming, spending every cent in the most efficient ways possible to continue presenting contemporary art programming in Austin. Additional funds raised beyond the Catalog/DVD costs will go towards establishing a mobile community education program able to bring contemporary art to new demographics, Austin public murals program, and other offsite art experiences.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
