Please come support the Icarus Project as we make our debut into the Portland scene. Come network and feel support around other crazy folks or just be an ally. Or look at the art on the wall. Or pick up some literature. Or listen to music. Or plot a way to overturn the abusive medical establishment. Or just flirt with all those cute kids who work at the Red and Black.

7pm style.

The Icarus Project is a non-profit community based website, support network, and underground media project created by and for people struggling with bipolar disorder and other dangerous gifts that are commonly labeled as mental illnesses. We believe that when we learn to take care of ourselves, the intertwined threads of madness and creativity can be tools of inspiration and hope in a repressed and damaged world. Our goal is to help people like ourselves feel less alienated, and to allow usboth as individuals and as a communityto tap into the true potential that lies between brilliance and madness.
