This is to invite you to a very special event, to celebrate over thirty years of ASYLUM
: International Magazine of Democratic Psychiatry
This one day conference will be held at the University of Manchester on Wednesday 28 June 2017. It will be an all-day, low-cost conference (to cover refreshments on the day), with a lower rate for subscribers to Asylum Magazine.
The theme of the day will be
‘Action and Reaction’.
We have in mind by that title a range of possible meanings, which include the kind of political action we need to take to defend our rights and build better services, and the struggle against reactionary attacks on mental health provision, and we have mind the kind of action that we collectively take and responses to what Asylum has been doing so far.
We would like you to contribute, with a talk about your experience or your work in the field of radical mental health, or a workshop session that brings together people to discuss what is happening now and where to go next.
The low registration charge for the conference will just cover the costs for the day. We do not have access to funding to cover guest speaker travel or accommodation, so we know this is a big ask. We are asking you to come to Manchester to be with us and many other activists, survivors and their allies. This will be a chance to take stock and discuss what we do next, and to share action about the many different kinds of networks you are involved in, to build those networks together.
