Hidden Voices is a radically inclusive, participatory, and co-creative organization committed to creating just, compassionate, and sustainable relationships. Our core values are simple: All lives have meaning. All stories matter. As practitioners of a radically inclusive process, we’re committed to breaking traditional artistic and social boundaries so as to tell the stories that matter most, shed light on complex situations and voices, and envision together the future we wish to create.
