Event description



International #Emerging Proud Launch: Premiere screenings of CRAZYWISE and #Emerging Proud films, and Open Space event to ‘Re-think Madness’


Your participation shapes the outcome! Join us for the first ever International #EmergingProud day of connection and innovation happening simultaneously in 8 or possibly 10! countries around the world. Be part of catalyzing discussions about ‘Rethinking madness’;Exploring The Wisdom Of Falling Apart: from Stigma to Transformation.

Together we are creating a new global movement towards a dream we all share...


We know that severe psychological distress is an ever-growing emergence problem for humanity. We know there is something inherently problematic with our current Western medical approach to mental health. The transformation potential of psychological crises into positive growth has never been examined by the medical model. The lived experience of many individuals, (indigenous communities included), speaks to this truth, bridging worlds and bringing new understanding. CRAZYWISE and #Emerging Proud add powerful voices to the growing conversation that believes a psychological crisis can be an opportunity for growth and potentially transformational, not a disease without a cure. None of us have the answers to what can be done alone; we need to join forces to explore what we can do to support this shift in perspective; Are you with us?


The main hub for this International event is happening HERE in Central London at the beautiful Strand Palace Hotel - and YOU can be part of the LIVE events! It's also happening in 8 countries simultaneously! Listen to all of the countries call in LIVE at the end of the day with the initiatives that have been catalysed!


Come armed with an open- mind, open- heart and share your passion to support the shift; your voice is important. Join us in a powerful group process to quickly catalyze and support positive transformation through inspiring creative and collaborative solutions to these complex issues. Harness International wisdom through the energy and ideas we create together with our passion for change. Share your ideas, passions, and possibly inspire others to join you in carrying a particular project forwards…
