NAVIGATING THE SPACE BETWEEN BRILLIANCE AND MADNESS
Sascha Altman DuBrul has been documenting and fomenting underground culture and radical people’s movements since he was a young teenager. From the anarchist squatter community in New York City to the Lacandon jungle of Chiapas, Mexico, the Earth First! road blockades of the Pacific Northwest and the rise of the Global Justice Movement, he has 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 is actively redefining the language and culture of mental health and illness with over 12,000 members and dozens of peer-based support groups all over the world (http://theicarusproject.net). Among certain crowds, he is well known as the bass player of the classic 90s punk band Choking Victim.
