About Us

Started on the Hill, now we’re here.

New Lens began as a project of an after-school art program called Kids on the Hill in the Reservoir Hill neighborhood of Baltimore, where young people were ready for the next level of leadership. The entity formally launched in 2009, through the fiscal sponsorship of Fusion Partnerships, Inc.

Our work has been seen, felt and heard at rec centers and health clinics, theaters and film festivals, conferences and institutions across the City, state and on the West Coast. For over a decade now, we have been working in the studio and on the streets, from classrooms to boardrooms.

We have emerged as Baltimore’s go-to production house for leaders seeking content to help their audiences see challenging issues and innovative efforts with a new lens :)︎︎
