A human experience project using the arts to create provocative conversations around the unspoken.
What’s Your Elephant is a movement that creates a safe space for people to use the arts to have dialogue and bring awareness to the unspoken. It includes visual and performing arts, interactive arts, creative community building, hands-on projects, workshops and events.
‘What’s Your Elephant’ as in ‘the elephant in the room’ is a metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored or going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss. It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.
‘What’s Your Elephant’ uses a combination of art exhibits, interactive installations, and workshops. With our series of discussions and interactive arts – we provoke awareness and facilitate discussions unveiling unaddressed topics including, but not limited to; gender, LGBTQ issues, discrimination and abuse. WYE works with the public, at-risk groups and communities. The value of a share & engaging the masses will demonstrate how the creative arts can assist in self-healing, bring awareness, and strengthen communities.
What’s Your Elephant collaborates with community groups, artists, non-profits, and corporate organizations.
