Open Paradigm Project

"The Open Paradigm Project is dedicated to fostering the voices and perspectives that accompany changing realities and new understandings of ourselves and the world. We believe these voices – unusual, or mad as they may be – light the way the way to cultural paradigms. Societies, businesses, and families throughout history have learned from these voices, and ignored them at their peril.

We produce creative, journalistic, promotional, and educational media on behalf of those who wish to examine, learn from, and reintegrate experiences of madness or otherness in our society. What is “crazy” ? What does it mean when we say or feel that we or someone else is “crazy”? These basic questions – and the prospect of recovering voices and people who have all too often been lost – provide the inspiration for our work."
