New Perspectives is a project initiated by Foam that helps newcomers and people granted temporary residence participate in society through a range of workshops, tours, masterclasses and exchanges linked to photography. The objective is to use photography to stimulate creative encounters and language development amongst Amsterdam residents. The exhibition presents some of the best work created as a result of these encounters.
