Independent Living Resource Center San Francisco’s Mad Pride Mad Hatter Competition

What is Mad Pride????? 
Mad Pride is a movement that celebrates the human rights and spectacular culture of people considered very different by our society. – Mind Freedom

What is a Mad Pride Event? 
A party, a parade, a celebration, a picnic, a concert….it’s anything a group of people who want to mark the occasion, and work towards de-stigmatizing psychiatric disabilities, want it to be.

What is ILRCSF’s Mad Hatter competition all about?

The challenge:

1)    Make a hat – the “madder”, the better. Use whatever you have at your disposal: found objects, recycled objects, buttons, cloth, paper…the limits only exist in your imagination. The only rule is: HAVE FUN.

2)    Photograph your Mad Hat and, no later than June 15,  send the photo, electronically, to:

3)    Join ILRCSF’s Facebook group: Mad Pride – San Francisco, for updates on semi-final and final judging, prizes, and other Mad Pride events around the Bay Area.

4)    Trade and collect Mad Hats, using ILRCSF’s upcoming Facebook Mad Pride Hat Application.
