Psymposia are running a Patreon campaign to raise funding for their new Psymposia Magazine and for hosting a variety of events covering psychedelic science, culture, social drug policy reform, and harm reduction.
The aim is for the magazine to be a platform for the voices of students, young people, artists, researchers and people who use drugs and want to discuss the important issues around them.
The money will allow Psymposia to pay their writers so that they can work on the magazine full time, as well as helping fund future events including lectures, conferences, networking events and storytelling.
Psymposia’s main event is Psychedelic Stories, described as “a half-curated, half-open mic storytelling session where people share their experiences in front of a crowd”. It is a mix of humour and science and a safe space for people to learn from each other. They also host Drug War Stories, which focuses on people’s experiences with the war on drugs around the world.
If you wish to support Psymposia or want more information, you can go to their patreon page here.
