If you are brutalised or abused by the mental health system and want to challenge and resist that, what can you do without it being pathologised as part of your condition?
Anger is seen part of your madness; complaints will be ignored and invalidated because any criticism on our part is a feature of our delusion.
Where do we have a voice or power? Apart from suggesting we need mad culture, I will show how you can use art and humour to educate the wider public of what is really going on in psychiatry; to reclaim control of our narratives and identity; and to respond powerfully to a system that has hurt too many people. Art is way to make resistance impossible to ignore.
The venue is accessible.
