PSYMPOSIA STAGE

at The Marketplace in the West Hall

 

presented by

Welcome to the Psymposia Stage, a cornerstone of the Marketplace at Psychedelic Science 2017. We’ll feature storytellers, authors, artists, panels, and discussions about psychedelic science, medicine, spirituality, and culture. We'll include elders, indigenous voices, and a place to explore beyond the science. We’ll also have many slots reserved for "open mic" storytelling, so if you have a psychoactive tale you want to share with the world, come tell it here—you never know whose life you might change by sharing your story. Please join us to listen, share, and meet the others.

The Psymposia Stage is located in the Marketplace in the West Hall (Oakland Convention Center), immediately adjacent to the Oakland Marriott City Center.

The Marketplace is free and open to the public.
