What is Truth?

Event Details

HGA

November 1, 2019

Q: What is truth?
A: A fact or belief that is accepted as true.

From the inner truths we’ve internalized to the outer truths we consume, we’re immersed in information that has been layered over time. They say the end of the information era is near, but what if individual re-calibration could change society’s trajectory?

Guest curator Ashley Ochiagha of FMYH.co facilitated an evening of inward and outward discovery as we explored what the truth means to each of us. Read Ashley’s summary of the event here.
