Schizy Inc makes space in the arts for
people with diverse experience of
We're based in Melbourne, Australia.
Schizy Inc. dream up and run awesome arts events and projects, including Mojo Film Festival, Pax Animo festival of illustration and Sanctuary outdoor arts retreat.
Schizy Inc. works for personal and community pride with genuine connections in our global lived-experience neighbourhood. We do this because we know healing from PTS comes from being creative, curious and courageous. And being around others doing the same.
Schizy Inc. is a fully disability-led organisation. People with mental health disability can be professional, expert, innovative and strategic as well as super creative.
'Schizy Inc are not art therapy'
Doing art is healing.
Yet our power as a cultural group is in owning and telling our stories,
displaying them in professional ways that respect you: the owner and creator.
We build the kind of spaces that make people proud to be artists.

'Schizy Inc are the opposite of newspapers'
Schizy Inc. believe schizophrenia is misrepresented in media.
It's not acceptable for journalists to consistently associate serious criminal activity with a mental health diagnosis. Mental illness is never public defense for crime.
The UN Convention of the Rights of People with Disability Article 8 (part 2)
states Australia must:
"Encourage all organs of the media to portray persons with disabilities in a manner consistent with the purpose of the present Convention" ie Article 1"to promote respect for their inherent dignity".
