Call for Submissions: Events for Mad Pride Toronto 2012

Tuesday, July 10 to Sunday, July 15

Mad Pride is an arts, culture, and heritage festival created by psychiatric survivors, consumers, mad people, folks the world has labelled “mentally ill”, and those in solidarity with us.

Mad Pride is about:

  • remembering and participating in mad history
  • challenging discrimination
  • advocating for rights
  • affirming mad identities
  • developing and empowering mad communities
  • having fun! 

Our lives and contributions are valuable and need celebration!

All events are free. Past events have included: educational talks/panels, workshops, theatre, music, art, poetry, comedy, films, craft/vendor sales, information booths, and more.

The Mad Pride Toronto 2012 Organizing Committee invites event submissions that are consumer/survivor driven. Please include contact information and a brief description of the proposed event/your idea.

Deadline: Friday, June 1, 2012

Email: events@madprideto.com

To request posters/brochures or if you know a group/organization we should speak to more about Mad Pride, please email outreach@madprideto.com.

Visit our website at www.madprideto.com and join us on Facebook (Mad Pride Toronto).

The schedule of Mad Pride Toronto 2012 events from July 10-15 will be available on our website, Facebook, and in the July 1st edition of the Consumer/Survivor Information Bulletin (www.csinfo.ca/csinfo@camh.net).
