Altered States of the Arts

Altered States of the Arts, co-founded by Howie the Harp, Gayle Bluebird and others, celebrates the creativity of mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors.

Altered States of the Arts is one of the early groups to join MindFreedom as a sponsor. This is a nationwide network in the USA of creative people who are current or former recipients of psychiatric services. Many call themselves “MAD Artists” or “Crazy Folk Artists”, to re-claim power over historically negative stereotypes and for use of their expanded meanings (e.g. excitement, outrageous, foolish, “infatuated with”). Some prefer to call themselves “Healing Artists” with an emphasis on art that promoted healing and wellness. [Note: The Altered States of the Arts 2008 Festival has been cancelled.]
