Reclaiming Our Lives – 26 & 27 September 2024

The World Hearing Voices Congress 2024 will be held in the Danish capital Copenhagen on 26 and 27 September. The theme of the congress is: Reclaiming Our Lives.

This annual event brings together voice-hearers, loved ones and other allies in a two-day event that explores and celebrates the diversity of voice-hearing, vision-seeing and related human experiences. It is a space where people from across the world come to connect with, and learn from, one another.

We are in the middle of organising the congress and we plan to have a website for it ready in the middle of January where you can read more and register.

If you’d like to find out more about the congress, including information about presenters, see the Congress Facebook Page.

Call for Contributions

The strength of the World Hearing Voices Congress comes from the diversity of people who contribute to it. If you would like to contribute to the Congress by holding a workshop, sharing a presentation or in some other way – please contact Jørn Ditlev Eriksen on his email

We are also excited to hear from people who have some creative ideas on ways you would like to contribute to the Congress and help make it an engaging, collaborative and connective event.

There will also be a human library at the Congress, where participants can ‘borrow’ a human for a joint discussion about the title of their particular ‘book’. If you’d like to find out more about the library and/or are planning to attend the Congress and are interested in being a ‘book’ within it – please get in touch.
