Rendezvous with Madness Festival 2020

Hosted by Workman Arts

Location

651 Dufferin Street, Toronto, ON, Canada

The Rendezvous with Madness Festival is the first and largest arts and mental health festival in the world. Using art as the entry point to illuminate and investigate the realities and mythologies surrounding mental illness and addiction, Rendezvous With Madness’ 2020 programming spotlights the human capacity for endurance in the face of great challenges. As community members are feeling the emotional effects of months of isolation, income precarity, and anxiety over what the future holds, the Rendezvous With Madness Festival offers a unique opportunity to come together in reflection and discussion.

We are thrilled to announce the full programming line-up for the 28th annual Rendezvous With Madness Festival. The Festival runs October 15-25, 2020 and showcases a range of feature and short films from around the globe, as well as Re:Building Resilience, a full-building exhibition activation of the Workman Arts building at 651 Dufferin Street featuring visual, media and performance art installations.
