Engaging & Empowering Through Art

Hidden Truths Project (HTP) believes that the arts can become the narrative to engage and empower marginalized members of our society to promote dialogue and foster understanding and acceptance.

Our 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy exhibits, Mindful-based Art Workshops, and If Not Us, Then Who? film series provides the catalyst to facilitate a dialogue based on lived experiences and to dismantle the stigmatization directed against these individuals.

We’re on a mission

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.

Our Core Values

Cultivating an environment of inclusivity

for all members of society, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, ability, health condition, gender identity, socio-economic status, citizenship, or religion.

Collaborate with individuals

across a diverse population to understand each other’s views, thereby paving the way for constructive transformation and an environment based on equity.

Promote creative expression

as an opportunity for disenfranchised members of society to candidly and without censorship “speak up” to help raise awareness about the pervasiveness and impact of epilepsy on well-being.

Inspire others

to think, join in the conversation, and become engaged partners of change.

Through collective engagement

we foster community building with peers and the public driven by an art-inspired narrative.

“The artist's work is a total and free expression of what they feel is important to them about some aspect of the world. Also, because artists express these issues, usually hands-on, through materials, sounds (Musicians), words (poetry or novels) and images, or even their bodies in dance, the feedback from what they create is immediate and doubly powerful to the artist. And because of this visceral materiality of the arts, it is directly communicated also to others who are open to its pleasures. So, the arts can immediately and fully empower the creating artist and immediately and viscerally empower those who experience art, movies, poetry and novels, music and song and dance etc.”
