The psychedelic renaissance is here to stay. Beyond promising mental health treatments, psychedelics have always been catalysts for creativity. Even today's medically focused research highlights their power to spark new ideas, build communities, and inspire progressive thinking. By altering perception, cognition, and emotions, psychedelics unleash creative potential.

Join us as we dive into the magic world of psychedelics, exploring their current and future impact on creativity, and revisiting their revolutionary influence during the 60s and 70s - the times of The Factory and Andy Warhol.

This event is part of an ongoing series with Anne Philippi, founder of the advocacy group & podcast The New Health Club, hosting live podcasting sessions and panel talks in the Fotografiska Ballroom. She is joined by an intriguing group of panelists, covering everything from the real-life experience of Warhol’s 60s and 70s, to contemporary research and activism, to the practice of making art specifically for psychedelic trips.

You will also get a complimentary tasting of the adaptogenic drink SENTIA Spirits.
