In a New Light is a constellation of strength-based therapeutic programs that harness the power of art and nature, and operate under the principles of positive psychology. These programs aim to empower children in residential treatment at Northwest Passage to perceive themselves through a lens of strength and awe-inspiring accomplishments. Through art exhibitions around the United States, as well as worldwide media exposure, our young artists have touched the lives of over one million people to date. By sharing their story, In a New Light gives youth struggling with mental health issues a voice to prove to the world that they are profoundly worthy of society’s investment.
THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE GALLERY
The Northwest Passage Gallery, featuring the In a New Light Gallery, located in Webster Wisconsin, is the physical manifestation of the hope and healing experiences of art and nature. The first of its kind, the Gallery showcases the artwork of Northwest Passage’s residents who are learning for the first time to navigate their lives based on the talents they hold, instead of the perceptions of weakness thrust upon them by societal norms.
Opened in May of 2013, the In a New Light Gallery serves as a bridge to our community – a public testament to the truly astonishing talents of children and teens who are too often marginalized by the stigma associated with their mental illness. The goal of the space is to create conversation and spread that tiny seed of insight that may one day change our culture.
