What We Do
We partner with organizations around the world to develop programs which support individuals in rediscovering how to listen to each other and share first person stories. Our group process, and the stories that emerge serve as effective tools for change amidst a world of technology and media overload. Learn more about the process.

Arts & Healing Network is delighted to present one of the 2014 AHN Awards to Amy Hill, storyteller, documentary filmmaker, public health consultant and co-founder of Silence Speaks. In 1999, after ten years working in community-based public health projects, Amy co-founded Silence Speaks, an international participatory media initiative offering a safe, supportive environment for telling and sharing stories that all too often remain unspoken. Silence Speaks surfaces personal narratives of struggle, courage and transformation and works to ensure that these stories play an instrumental role in promoting gender equality and human rights. Since 2005, Amy has continued to lead Silence Speaks and other global health and human rights-related projects as a staff member at the Center for Digital Storytelling. Amy has overseen the use of storytelling all over the world in places like Nepal, Ethiopia, Uganda, Brazil and more.
To learn more about Amy Hill, please visit the Silence Speaks web site where you can also watch some of the digital stories that have been recorded from around the world.
Let us be your guide through designing and implementing your group's digital storytelling efforts. We work closely with you, drawing from our knowledge base to quickly assess your needs, propose viable and cost-effective solutions, and ensure results. Learn more about our Custom Project Services.
In honor of the civil rights movement, we bring you this story from our All Together Now project that engages communities and individuals by using first-person stories to increase awareness of civil and human rights.
As the world marks the 50th anniversary of countless civil rights milestones in the U.S., All Together Now seeks to honor the legacy and impact of civil and human rights movements of the 1950s to the present day by collecting intergenerational and global stories of civil and human rights.
