Connecting People and Ideas in the Hearing Voices Movement
Sandra Escher

Art has been an important Intervoice ally on promoting understanding about the experience of Hearing Voices around the world. In recognition of this, we are promoting an art contest for the International Hearing Voices Community.

This art contest honours the memory of Sandra Escher, one of the founders of the International Hearing Voices Movement, who had a great appreciation for artistic expressions and sadly passed away in 2021.


This is an online art contest

Only graphic arts, drawings and painting. Good quality images so we can evaluate them in the best possible way.

Only through this email – [email protected].

The deadline for submissions is 01/09/2023 (1 September 2023).

10 finalists will be announced on World Hearing Voices Day, September 14th 2023 and shared on all Intervoice social networks and website.

No AI images will be accepted.


Judging will be conducted by some incredibly talented individuals within the broader International Hearing Voices Network.

  • Michelle Dalton (Ireland)
  • Indigo Daya (Australia)

One finalise will with a prize that includes a £500 cash prize alongside a spotlight via the website and social media to celebrate the artist and their creations.

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.
