    HISTORY

    Artist Lissie Habie and photographer Mitchell Denburg created New Roots Foundation in Antigua, Guatemala in 1998 with the aim of fostering education, environmental conservation, and community-led sustainability initiatives.

    After battling brain cancer for several years, Lissie Habie passed away in 2008. To honor Lissie’s life and philanthropic vision, New Roots Foundation initiated a program of artistic residencies in 2013, which evolved into La Nueva Fábrica, the official home of the residency program and a contemporary art space providing artists, curators, educators, students, and communities with opportunities for artistic and cultural engagement.

    NEW ROOTS FOUNDATION

    New Roots Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1998. Its core activities focus on Environment and Education and are implemented across two forested regions of Guatemala: the Northwest region around Laguna Brava and the Pacific South Coast. 

    The core concern at the center of the foundation’s activities is deforestation, one of the greatest threats to life on our planet that is disproportionately affecting rural and Indigenous communities. In Guatemala, forests are the homes of millions of peoples, majoritarily Maya. New Roots Foundation works to provide communities with educational and agricultural resources to create sustainable practices that lift local actors while safeguarding the environment. The foundation seeks to achieve this through sustainable agroforestry, ecotourism, forest conservation, and youth leadership training.
