Hidden Truths Project is dedicated to engaging and empowering individuals impacted by invisible and visible disabilities through the arts, and to raise social consciousness on the injustices directed towards these members of our community.
Our 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy exhibits and Mindful-based Art Workshops, provide the catalyst to facilitate a dialogue based on lived experiences and to dismantle the stigmatization directed against these individuals.
Hidden Truths Project's mission is to raise awareness about the pervasiveness of the hidden disability of epilepsy, and to improve the quality of life and well-being for these individuals, their families, and caregivers.
We hold these Core Values as indispensable in order to be true advocates for the diverse communities that we serve.
While providing a creative platform for those living with epilepsy, it is our intention to cultivate an environment of inclusivity for all members of society, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, ability, health condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, citizenship, or religion.
Through the arts, HTP provides an opportunity for disenfranchised members of society to candidly and without censorship “speak up” to help raise awareness about the pervasiveness and effects of epilepsy and other life challenges, in an effort to improve the quality of life for individuals directly or indirectly affected by epilepsy.
Working collectively, we hope to create an art-inspired narrative that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve and to provide a voice for those who have been marginalized.
Collaborating with individuals across a diverse population is only effective if we attempt to understand each other’s views and their basis, thereby paving the way for constructive transformation and an environment based on equity.
HTP’s goal is to inspire others to think, join in the conversation, and become engaged partners of change.
