Dedicated to the voices that we cannot see, to those who’ve not yet had space to be heard or discovered, and to gathering our collective strength to push back against those forces that have historically drowned us out.

Hearing Voices USA is proud to present the 9th World Hearing Voices Congress: A Revolution of Unseen Voices. The Congress will be held August 16 to August 18, 2017 at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The Voices Congress is a time for us to come together from across the world—those who hear voices, see visions, and experience other unusual phenomenon, as well as those who wish to learn from us and those with whom we choose to ally. It is a space to connect, to gain strength, to share knowledge, and to push and stretch the boundaries of our understanding. Together, we are not alone.
As we seek to create this space—both restorative and empowering– we reach out to you to help us make it real. We are currently seeking proposals (20, 60, or 90 minutes in length) from individuals across the world. A variety of perspectives and topics are welcome, but proposals that include interactive components and/or focus directly on the experiences of voice hearing, visions, unique beliefs, and negotiating alternate realities (including how this movement might intersect with other liberation movements) will be prioritized.
We also welcome proposals for creating offerings like music. This form can be used for those, as well.Proposals are due by 5pm/17:00 Eastern Daylight Savings Time (GMT-4) on April 3, 2017
