Hello, Icaristas and friends!

We’ve got another unofficial teeny-tiny Northcoast Icarus newsletter here for you.

HSU Mental Health and Wellness Extravaganza
We’ll be tabling at the HSU Mental Health and Wellness Extravaganza on Wednesday, May 4, from 11:00 to 2:00 on the HSU Quad. We’ll have space to sit down and work on making mad maps, with examples and materials provided. Come hang out with us, and enjoy the rest of the Wellness Extravaganza as well.

This Month’s Meetings
They’ll be on the 14th and 28th at 4:00 p.m. in the little back room at Has Beans. Come join us for discussion and support, and bring your mad friends. Is there a particular discussion topic you’d like? Please let us know!

Fliers and Outreach
We have some new fliers now, including quarter-page handbills. Want to help put them up or hand them out? See the attached PDFs, or we’d be happy to give you printed copies.

Mad love,

Abby

Crooked Beauty
Just as a heads-up, we’ll be watching/discussing the film Crooked Beauty at the Community Wellness Center (908 7th Street, Eureka) at 5:30 on March 24. We can plan details at our next meeting, but for now, put it on your calendars and start inviting your mad friends and allies to come with you!

Raven Project
We’ll be doing a brief, informal presentation at Raven on March 17th. For those who want to help, let’s get together and plan! I’ll contact people who I know were interested to set up a time, or let me know if you want to be included and we haven’t talked yet.

Other Exciting Things
We’re making plans for an art show, talking about a potential tabling/workshop opportunity, putting up fliers for March meetings (I’ll make you copies for you if you need some to distribute), and doing other things I’m forgetting about!

This Month’s Meetings
They’re still the 12th and 26th at 4:30 p.m. in the little back room at Has Beans.

Feel free to email with questions–and we hope you show up for whatever interests you so we can share creativity, plans,and support! nc.icarus@gmail.com

Spread the word to people who might be interested!

The Icarus Project envisions a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of ‘mental illness’ rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework.

We are a network of people living with and/or affected by experiences that are often diagnosed and labeled as psychiatric conditions. We believe these experiences are mad gifts needing cultivation and care, rather than diseases or disorders. By joining together as individuals and as a community, the intertwined threads of madness, creativity, and collaboration can inspire hope and transformation in an oppressive and damaged world. Participation in The Icarus Project helps us overcome alienation and tap into the true potential that lies between brilliance and madness.
