PsychedelX is a student talk program taking place in April 2022 featuring roughly 20-minute long talks from students around the world with impactful and interdisciplinary ideas. PsychedelX is about sharing creative, novel perspectives from emerging voices in the psychedelic space that could shake up psychedelic discourse and expand our minds.
Importantly, distinct from traditional conferences, PsychedelX is a process. Each speaker is paired with a peer mentor and a talk-creation coach, and receives feedback on two drafts of their talks. The PsychedelX process allows students to gain experience sharing their ideas with their peers with the hopes of creating a lasting community and professional connections.
Ultimately, we hope that the PsychedelX experience will inspire students to be confident in whatever their next professional steps be, whether that be publishing a paper on the topic of their talk, applying to graduate school, or simply sharing their story on broader platforms. Fundamentally, we believe that with a bit of encouragement and feedback that students can convey their perspectives and ideas in a way that can help make the world a better place. We anticipate that the talks shared and connections made at PsychedelX will reverberate in the psychedelics space for years to come.
The Intercollegiate Psychedelics Network (IPN) is a youth-led garden organization dedicated to the development of students into the next generation of diverse and interdisciplinary leaders in the field of psychedelics. We envision a future where safe, legal, and equitable access to psychedelic healing creates a more just, peaceful and connected world.
As members of the R&PD mushroom of IPN, we are committed to empowering students to pursue careers related to psychedelics by offering opportunities and resources that promote development, growth, preparedness, and a sense of belonging 🤲🏼🙏
