Friday, May 18, 2012 is the deadline to submit a proposal for Mad Pride – an arts, culture, and heritage festival created by psychiatric survivors, consumers, and those in solidarity with people living with mental health conditions. Mad Pride is about remembering and participating in mad history, challenging discrimination, advocating for rights, affirming identities, and promoting empowerment.
Mad Pride is taking place in Toronto from Tuesday, July 10 to Saturday, July 14, 2012. All events are free, and past events have included educational talks and panels, workshops, theatre, music, art, poetry, comedy, films, craft/vendor sales, information booths and more.
The Mad Pride Toronto Organizing Committee invites event submissions that are consumer/survivor driven. Please include contact information and a brief description of the proposed event/your idea.
E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Naomi at 416-516-1422 ext. 250.
