• A New Creative Global Initiative

    Speak Your Truth

    The Speak Your Truth Initiative is a participatory social arts initiative that provides a creative voice for all those who want to speak out against gender-based violence. By filling in our photo mosaic with pictures and words of solidarity, we will create a work of art together that can be shared worldwide and that is a testament to resilience and a demand for justice.

    Speak Your Truth

What do we mean when we ask you to speak your truth?

  • Speak From Your Heart

  • Share Your Resiliency

  • Share Your Wisdom

 

 

  • What would the world be like without gender-based violence?

  • What is your story of solidarity or resilience?

 

These questions are asked in the context of providing both a voice for a survivor and a gift of wisdom for anyone.

Respond to our questions in any language by uploading your art, story or video to the mosaic. We are gathering voices from survivors and their allies to make one single piece of art that will represents a unified voice calling for change.

Featured Stories

 

We are featuring a different issue within the gender-based violence spectrum in the photomosaic each month. Our website will feature news, art and political actions throughout the world and highlight an inspired cross-section of contributors.

We want to hear YOUR stories of solidarity and resilience. We are seeking news and articles we can feature.

 Partner

We have provided some prompts to help you think about what you would like to say. Feel free to respond in any way you like.

What does it feel like to be believed?

What would you say to a survivor you may never meet, but who needs your wisdom?

What does your resilience look like?

What is your story of solidarity or resilience?

 

Watch as our mosaic fills in! Like a puzzle, every shared piece of content will make up and fill in our large central image, underscoring that a single voice contributes to the whole.

Our year long, online exhibition will be archived and culminate with a live event exhibiting YOUR postcards, photographs and stories of resilience.
