The Regent Park Project: The Web Series - Seasons One and Two out now!
Growing up in Regent Park is complicated.
What should be a straightforward walk home goes terribly awry. Siblings clash - over culture, over family responsibilities, over bad choices. A vlogger finds his voice, and his friend loses his.
Told through the eyes of youth from the community, The Regent Park Project opens the door to a world most people only see through the lens of stereotypes.
Instead, we invite you into a community full of complexity, and friendship, love and fear, laughter, and irony.
