Operating since 1990, Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre (Regent Park Focus) is a community driven, not-for-profit organization located in Regent Park, Toronto. The organization is motivated by the belief that participatory media practices can play a vital role in building and sustaining healthy communities.
Regent Park Focus serves as a Community New Media, and Radio, and Television Arts Broadcasting Centre dedicated to:
1) best practices in training and mentorship of youth in radio and television broadcasting and digital arts;
2) the creation and dissemination of information relevant to the interest and concerns of the local Regent Park neighbourhood as well as Toronto’s diverse communities;
3) the building of social cohesion in Regent Park by regularly profiling the community’s cultural life and providing forums for residents to learn about each other, voice their experiences, share stories, and explore issues of relevance;
