Our Vision: When we empower underrepresented populations to effectively tell their stories, we engage communities in dialogue and positive action. This process strengthens community cohesion and provides pathways for increased communication, cooperation, and respect.
Our Mission: To challenge, strengthen, and connect our diverse communities through the transformative power of the individual voice.
What We Believe: Stories make change possible. Stories open minds and inspire action. Stories create pathways.
Since 2003, Hidden Voices has collaborated with underrepresented communities to create award-winning works that combine narrative, mapping, performance, music, digital media, animation, and interactive exhibits to engage audiences and participants in explorations of difficult issues. Hidden Voices creates venues where stories from those rarely seen and heard by mainstream society take center stage. These life-changing stories provide insight about identity, place, and access. They help us understand the unrecognized, the unfamiliar, the displaced and forgotten within and among us. A Hidden Voices project encourages deep listening; expansive dialogue, and inspired action. Hidden Voices believes in the power of stories to transform our communities and our policies.
Hidden Voices is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit, with more than 100 volunteers and contributing professionals developing two to three projects annually.
