August 16-18, 2017 @ Boston University, MA
The Intervoice Day will be held on August 16, and the Congress itself will run on August 17 – 18, 2017 at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. See their website http://2017congress.hearingvoicesusa.org for up to date information.
Dedicated to the voices that we cannot see, to those who’ve not yet had space to be heard or discovered, and to gathering our collective strength to push back against those forces that have historically drowned us out.
The Hearing Voices Congress is a time for us to come together from across the world – those who hear voices, see visions, and experience other unusual phenomenon, as well as those who wish to learn from us and those with whom we choose to ally. It is a space to connect, to gain strength, to share knowledge, and to push and stretch the boundaries of our understanding. Together, we are not alone.
As they seek to create this space – both restorative and empowering – HVN USA reach out to you to help make it real. They are currently seeking proposals (20, 60 and 90 minutes in length) from individuals across the world. A variety of perspectives and topics are welcome, but proposals that include interactive components and/or focus directly on the experiences of how voice hearing, visions, unique beliefs, and negotiating alternate realities (including how this movement might intersect with other liberation movements) will be prioritized.
Proposals are due by 5pm/17:00 Eastern Daylight Savings Time (GMT-4) on April 3, 2017
