Schizy Inc. is a vibrant collective of creative advocates and artists
with diverse experience of complex mental health.
I started Schizy Inc in 2008 as a practical response to the lack of vocational arts opportunities and pathways for people with lived experience at psych rehab and during Schizophrenia Week.
Schizy Inc started out as a local live music event, expanding to numerous Schizy Week events including International Music Jams, the Big Creative Arts Muster, and Mojo Festival of Short Film. Mojo is currently a mult-artform festival, involving stand up comedy, theatre, dance and music. Schizy Inc has opened the country's first dedicated professional art studio for practicing visual artists and writers at Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne.
Schizy Inc abides with the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Disabled People, are members of the Charter for Compassion and we operate by standards and ethics of the Australian arts sector.
Schizy Inc is a registered charity with DGR status.
Our big dream project is establishing a regional lived experience property and are about to launch our Schizy Inc Healing Farm Feasibility Report.
