WE ARE HERE TO INSPIRE YOU

Our Story

New School Stories is a documentary mini-series devoted to highlighting the next generation of change makers. Each episode features a New York City college student using their craft to affect society and culture.

As a collective of dynamic artists, New School Stories drives a mission of engaging social change. We are the movers, shakers, and change makers of tomorrow. 

 

We believe the youth of this generation and the next have a capacity to implement real measurable change in the world. The youth of this generation have voices waiting to be heard and stories itching to be told.

Our goal is simple. We capture the stories of those bold enough to push boundaries in hope of a greater future. In doing so, we hope to inspire our audience to examine their own capacity for implementing change in the world - both online and offline. 

 

Tune in as NYC creatives show how they’re making an impact in their respective communities and industries.

DISCLAIMER

New School Stories is founded upon standards of kindness, integrity, and respect. While our team aims to uphold neutral positions in our ever-changing global world, we value the unique perspectives our featured artists may present in telling their stories without endorsing ideologies.
