Healthcare History Events – After the Asylum

Are you interested in the history of psychiatric deinstitutionalization in Canada?

The organizers of the upcoming After the Asylum Conference are hosting two public events showcasing the “provocative, visually appealing and interactive representations of the ground-breaking 5-year project about the history and ongoing legacy of psychiatric deinstitutionalization.” Both events are sure to capture the imagination and broaden understanding of mental health in both the hospital and community contexts.

On November 6th at Gallery Gachet, attendees can view unique archival photographs and listen to authors read from their new collection, “Mad Matters: A Critical Reader in Canadian Mad Studies” at the Asylum to Activism Reception.

And on November 7th at the Vancouver Central Public Library, attendees can view and participate in interactive exhibits and meet many of the folks behind the project at the After the Asylum Exhibit.
