Charlotte, NC: Cohoba, a local non-profit organization that advocates for equitable psychedelic assisted therapy, is announcing the first annual CohobaFest, a night of arts, community, and psychedelic education. CohobaFest will be hosted within the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VAPA), at the OBRA Collective gallery on Saturday, July 30, from 5-9pm.
The suggested donation for attendance is $25. Tickets are available via EventBrite.
CohobaFest will feature Victor A. Cabral, a licensed social worker who is producing the
documentary Transcendence, which explores the reemergence of therapeutic and ceremonial psychedelic medicine through the experiences of BIPOC individuals. A working clip from the film will be shown, followed by a discussion moderated by Cohoba therapists. CohobaFest will also feature the talents of local BIPOC artists and allies in a psychedelic gallery show.
Beverages will be available by donation, and local food trucks will be on site.
By attending CohobaFest, you will help advance Cohoba’s mission of providing harm reduction workshops, educational training opportunities, and accessible therapy. Reserve your tickets today and come celebrate with us!
