Success Stories

Our Time is Now - GEAR UP New Mexico

Low graduation rates and poverty dominate the story of New Mexico education. However, when examined through the lens of rural New Mexican students, a dynamic and more complex set of human narratives emerge – of deep family ties, perseverance, cultural traditions, bridging worlds, personal struggle and success.

OUR TIME IS NOW was produced by New Mexico-based creative engagement non-profit Littleglobe and their “Turn the Lens” community filmmaking engagement program. OUR TIME IS NOW was funded in part by the New Mexico Higher Education Department and the GEAR UP NM Documentary Film Initiative, a collaborative statewide filmmaking project bringing forward stories within New Mexico's public high schools.

Littleglobe is a New Mexico-based 501(c)(3) organization devoted to building individual and community capacity through collaboration and creative engagement. Littleglobe exists to create collaborative art, encourage community capacity, and foster life-affirming connections across the boundaries that divide us.
