Call for Submissions: Events for Mad Pride Toronto 2012

Tuesday, July 10 to Saturday, July 14

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, May 18, 2012
