Marchers holding signs marching in the Mad Pride Parade in Toronto 2016We had a great time marching in the Bed Push Parade – Mad Pride March in 2016. We showed our strength in the community and made lots of noise along the way! We marched from the Parkdale Library along Queen Street to Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Mad Times is a space for you to share your Mad art and creativity. We are holding a cover contest for our inaugural issue. The theme is universal: this is an introduction. We are thinking about… beginnings, initial psych experiences, Mad Pride, newspaper style.
Art that incorporates “Mad Times” is favourable, but everything and anything will be considered.

 

DEADLINE is JANUARY 31st!

Feel free to share widely.

Email SUBMISSIONS to: madtimestoronto@gmail.com

Your work will be an important part of the first issue of Mad Times.

Mad Times is a publication by Mad Pride Toronto. Mad Times Magazine aims to create an open forum for Mad writers, artists, and activists to share their art and voices with the broader community.

We will choose one image for the cover (print, online). We will also choose other images for the online version of Mad Times.

Submitting work for consideration is easy. Email us samples of your work (high res JPG files), along with a short bio (Do you identify as Mad, consumer survivor, psych survivor or otherwise been in the psychiatric system?), and a description of the work.

Please include the following with your submission:
• Your Name (and company name if you have one)
• Contact information (Phone, Cell, Email)
• Website (if you have one)

Email submissions to: madtimestoronto@gmail.com
There will be another round of calls for future issues. We appreciate your hard work. We are all volunteers. We will have a longer lead time for future issues.
