New Lens is a youth driven social justice organization based in Reservoir Hill that makes art and media about issues where a youth perspective can inspire change, an often-underrepresented perspective. The work is used to address systemic problems, facilitate dialogue, shift perspectives and stimulate action.
New Lens is staffed by a team of 20 youth and several adults who are the core artists, media-makers and instructors for our projects.
This year we are working on issues of justice, health and education and will impact over 200 youth throughout the year. We invite you to participate in our work through viewing and responding to our projects online: http://www.newlens.info/index.html
