    Through our time-tested storytelling methodology, transformational workshops and stellar performances, TMI Project is changing the world, one story at a time.

    Regardless of background or experience, TMI Project storytellers become agents of change for social justice movement building by bravely and candidly sharing the “too much information” parts of their stories, the parts they usually leave out because they’re too ashamed or embarrassed.

    TMI Project envisions a world where true storytelling is an agent of change; where, through the sharing of radically candid, true, personal narratives, everyone—storytellers and listeners alike—can become empowered, release shame and stigma, and replace old understandings with new ones. We aspire to engender compassion, understanding and public awareness. We aim to incite social, legal, and political change by providing participants the skills needed to be captivating storytellers, and by amplifying the voices of populations whose stories often go unheard.

  • #VicariousResilience Play all

    Vicarious Resilience seeks to raise awareness and amplify the voices of those who have inspiring stories to share about living with mental illness in the Hudson Valley and throughout the United States. We aim to provide audiences the opportunity to listen, expand their awareness, and eradicate stigma around mental illness so all those who are living with mental illness are free to share their truth. Our hope is the film will inspire mental health professionals to incorporate our true storytelling methodology into their group work and private practice.

    The documentary follows three Hudson Valley residents over the course of a 10-week TMI Project storytelling workshop presented at The Mental Health Association in Ulster County (MHA). Along the way, the participants experience the transformative power of true storytelling; they face mental illness, childhood neglect and addiction head-on; and, ultimately, share deeply personal stories about love, loss and triumph.

    Since 2012, twice a year, TMI Project has offered 10-week memoir writing and true storytelling workshops specially tailored to meet the needs of MHA's population of adults with mental illness. Our partnership with this peer-based organization–where a portion of the staff are people who have recovered from mental illness–is designed to help destigmatize mental illness, while also empowering participants to imagine and work toward the possibility of their own recovery.

    The documentary was shot by North Guild Films and premiered locally at The Rosendale Theater on May 29th, 2018.

  • #blackstoriesmatter Play all

    #blackstoriesmatter is TMI Project’s way of making an impact in addressing incidents of hate, bigotry and racial injustice in our local community while also participating as an organization in the national outcry of injustice. In alignment with TMI Project’s mission to empower people and bring about change through true storytelling, #blackstoriesmatter seeks to raise awareness around issues of inequality and injustice through true storytelling and inspire people to take action while also using our digital platform to expose inequality and injustice rapidly and frequently and amplify the voices of those who have inspiring stories to share, about black people surviving--and thriving--in the Hudson Valley and throughout the United States.

    We aim to provide audiences the opportunity to listen, expand their awareness, possibly identify internalized racism or uncover unintentionally racists points of view. This heightened awareness will enable audience members to replace biased belief systems with informed knowledge, deepened compassion and an active commitment to work for justice for all.

    The live stream of our inaugural #blackstoriesmatter performance debuted on March 25, 2017 at the Pointe of Praise Church in Kingston, NY.
