“Solidarity in Times of Adversity: The Global Voice Hearing Community Reconnecting”
The Hearing Voices Network Ireland (HVNI) is proud to present the 12th World Hearing Voices Congress, which will be held from 1-3 September 2021 in Cork, Ireland.
The Congress will have a hybrid format, with in-person events, if restrictions allow, in Cork, and online events. In-person delegates will be able to access all the in-person events in Cork as well as the online events. Online delegates will be able to access all the keynote presentations, all the online concurrent sessions, and all the networking sessions, but they will not be able to access the in-person concurrent sessions in Cork. If restrictions do not allow to have a hybrid Congress in Cork, then Congress will move fully online!
Over the past 18 months, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented challenge across the globe, which many of us will have experienced as disconnecting, isolating, frightening, chaotic, overwhelming, and, at times, unbearable. However, the pandemic has also shown the power of solidarity when communities come together to offer each other support in times of adversity.
This year’s Congress will create spaces for voice hearers, family members, carers, practitioners, academics, and all those interested in the principles and values of the International Hearing Voices Movement, to connect and or reconnect with one another in a post-pandemic world, either in person in Cork, Ireland or online across the globe.”
