Now in its 17th year, New Visions is one of Inside Out’s longest-running initiatives. The program is proudly co-presented by Charles Street Video. The intergenerational component, and the diversity of voices and narratives that are explored in the videos, are at the heart of this significant program. Close to 120 participants have told their stories through the New Visions lens, with subjects ranging from immigration, family, dancing, loneliness, elder neglect, same-sex relationships, abuse, coming out, religion, the prison industrial complex, aliens, employment, music and mental health, to everything in between. This year we celebrate five new additions, whose videos will both challenge and touch us.
