Connecting People and Ideas in the Hearing Voices Movement

mia-reportsWe’re really excited to share this excellent feature with you. “Voices Matter” was filmed during last year’s World Hearing Voices Congress in Cardiff (Wales) and captures some of the vibrancy of the Hearing Voices Movement.

Here is what ‘Mad In America’ say about the feature:

“Voices Matter” is the first full production to emerge from the Open Paradigm Project, a collective dedicated to heeding the voices and perspectives that accompany the diverse and changing realities we all share. This documentary about the Hearing Voices Movement was filmed over the course of three days at the 2012 World Hearing Voices Congress in Cardiff, Wales.

The Hearing Voices Movement started 25 years ago in the Netherlands, as an organization for voice hearers and others interested in this phenomenon. In 1988, The Hearing Voices Network was established in England, and in following years, further networks have been established in Italy, Finland, Wales, Scotland, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Japan, Israel, New Zealand, Australia and the USA. The network is currently comprised of thousands of Hearing Voices groups, and growing.

Stay tuned to for future Open Paradigm documentaries, live streaming events, and related productions.

Intervoice was set up to support the International Hearing Voices Movement, celebrating the diversity and creativity within it. We do what we can to share information and connect people with groups, networks and resources.
