The Reed Sea

On Thursday June 11, at 8 PM join Portland Hearing Voices at a Launch Celebration Music Show at Backspace Gallery.

Backspace Gallery is at 115 NW 5th Avenue

Listen to some great local music, learn more about Portland Hearing Voices, discover a little about voice-hearing and non-ordinary sensory experiences, raise some seed money to get us off the ground — and have some fun!

Come hear performers The Reed Sea, Reclinerland, and Gavin Castleton — sweet and soulful musicians. Listen at their websites, and thanks to their generosity in performing for mental diversity in Portland:

Please spread the word! We’re asking $5 -$15 at the door (our policy is that no one will ever be turned away for lack of funds). We also need a couple of volunteers to help with event logistics, and we really want you to invite your friends, colleagues, and community to come as well – word of mouth is key. Contact us to help out by email @

A wonderful opportunity to hear some great music, hang out, and connect.

Portland Hearing Voices is a new education and support effort to promote mental diversity. We create public education, discussion groups, and other community support related to hearing voices, seeing visions, and having unusual beliefs and sensory experiences. Portland Hearing Voices aims to reduce fear and misunderstanding, question stereotypes, overcome isolation, and create a more inclusive and supportive community.
