The Hidden Truths, The Mind Unraveled is presented by Hidden Truths Project in collaboration with the Epilepsy Therapy Project, an initiative of the Epilepsy Foundation, as an annual fundraiser. The two-day celebration of the arts is designed to showcase the artwork of artists with epilepsy. The inaugural event included reproductions of artwork from Dr. Steven Schachter's portfolio of artists living with epilepsy. The event was a huge success, allowing donations of over $10,000 to Epilepsy Therapy Project's work in translational research. It was instrumental in creating an awareness of the incidence and prevalence of this hidden disability, affecting so many individuals in our society. Barriers were broken down, preconceived biases diminished, gaining a wider acceptance and support of this condition. The art show maintains the spirit of celebration in support of the amazing group of artists living with epilepsy. Art providing the educational tool, enhancing societal awareness of this condition. Art speaks a universal language to allow a dialog between the artist and the observer revealing the hidden truths about epilepsy.
