Section Two: Social Shapers. Sascha Altman DuBrul, HCES '86, HCHS '92 "Navigating the Space Between Brilliance and Madness: A Counter- Narrative of Psychic Diversity" Co-founder, Icarus Project Sascha Altman DuBrulhas been documenting and fomenting underground culture and radical peoples' movements since he was a teenager. From the anarchist squatter community in New York City to the Lacandon jungle of Chiapas, Mexico, to the Earth First! road blockades of the Pacific Northwest to the rise of the Global Justice Movement, he's been a pioneer in urban farming and creative mental health advocacy. He is the co- founder of the Bay Area Seed Interchange Library and the Icarus Project, a radical community support network and media project that's actively redefining the language and culture of mental health and illness with over 15,000 members and dozens of peer-based supports groups all over the world. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
