Lens Think is for social and regional equality in photography specifically and broader in the Arts. We are based and work across Yorkshire and the North East of England. We are a social entries arts organisation, to meet, share, grow ideas, & develop diverse photography in the North of England. With the aims of fighting for class equality and a more creative industries through participation and radical community arts. We are open to everyone + welcomes all.

Our participation is making small changes through everyday happenings that are unobtrusive to communities. We are friendly, brave, warm, observant and knowledgable. We welcome openness. We want a fair and diverse industry. We especially welcomes those who are under-represented, particularly artists living with a disability, working class artists, artists of colour + LGBTQIA artists looking to gain opportunities in untraditional ways.

It started in late 2016, noticing a large absence of those from working class origins in the arts and cultural industries. We began as socials, and realised we needed to do more to bring about change. We have worked with NGO's, NPO's, Universities and organisations to do this. It is a gradual process. We look to bring about opportunity, create space to share and evoke ideas and conversation,
