Mad Gifts Week: A Celebration of Diversibility
2007 October 29th - November 4th
For anyone and everyone who takes pride in being different, in a world where what's considered 'normal' is killing us!
Celebrate Your Mad Gifts with a week of diversibility awareness, skills-share, discussion and activism! Show your mad pride to the world in the form of outreach workshops, language swaps, movie night, speak out or skills-share. Make the journey a personal rite of transformation by creating a mad map, writing a poem or a song about mad pride, draw your mad map persona, or make a madness first aid kit. Build community by discussing language, stigma, social and environmental factors influencing madness, trade alternative healing methods, or form local groups around areas of mad activism, such as the medication of youth.
Join the discussion on the forums to get involved with local and national levels of cultural evolution through collective and individual movement:
