Icarus is turning 10!
It started with a crazy story that a bunch of people read in a San Francisco newspaper that generated a meeting of Sascha Altman Dubrul and Jacks Ashley McNamara, two strangers with big ideas, who envisioned Icarus. What followed is that a bunch of brilliant and intense folks found each other, and helped build a community amidst the darkness perpetrated by the mainstream psychiatric model of the early 21st century. We’ve managed not only to survive with our scar songs, mad wisdom, and crooked beauty, but by 2012 to grow into an international community of activists, artists, healers, scholars, lovers, fighters, and dreamers!
So we are celebrating. On this page you'll find information on events happening in various cities, ways to be involved online, new posters and artwork, and reportbacks from the events after they happen. Thanks to everyone for being a part of this journey. To the next 10 years and beyond!
