"Our intention with Psyched was to create a truly community-led conference," says co-founder of PSYCHED 2021, Marik Hazan. "Instead of taking the lead on every piece of content we invited the most impactful organizations across the ecosystem to organize panels, workshops, and Q&A's reflective of their own work within the space. It couldn't be more rewarding to see the ecosystem come together and provide free high quality education that is so low barrier with regards to access."
PSYCHED 2021 looks forward to providing an open-access and inclusive event that brings together anyone interested in the psychedelics ecosystem. Hosted and moderated by representatives from ICEERS, Temple of the Way of Light, Lucid News, Heroic Hearts Project, The McKenna Academy and Intercollegiate Psychedelics Network, Tabula Rasa Ventures and many others, the conference serves as a true celebration within the community and provides an exceptional and entertaining experience for attendees looking for greater access to psychedelic education. As research in psychedelics has ramped up to a global scale and enthusiasm is at an all time high, PSYCHED 2021 seeks to answer questions including, What does the psychedelics ecosystem look like today? How will it change over the coming decade? What does a healthy future look like? What steps can we take today to make it happen?
"As we move towards decriminalizing plant and fungi medicines, it is important that educational content about psychedelics and plant medicine is freely open and available to all," says Social Club TV co-founder and Chief Content Officer, Shelley Madison. "We are excited to offer audiences 10 days of free programming sharing multiple perspectives from the voices leading the Psychedelic generation."
