Event description
Join us for an evening of advocacy in support of those living with and affected by eating disorders

About this Event

VoicED is an annual community art event curated by the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) that takes place during Eating Disorder Awareness Week (EDAW). This year, we're raising awareness about the message "Eating Disorders Can't Afford to Wait", while continuing to cultivate a community of hope to those who are living with or affected by eating disorders. By providing a "voice" to those with lived experience, we hope to empower everyone involved to continue to dismantle the discrimination around eating disorders.

Please RSVP on EventBrite so our team can account for your attendance and the venue's space capacity.

  • The event is pay-what-you-can, with cash accepted at the door. There is a suggested donation amount of $10.
  • 100% of the profits go toward supporting NEDIC's helpline and instant chat services for people living with or affected by eating disorders

Interested in performing at VoicED?

Will the event contain triggering content?

While our hope is to create a safe space during VoicED, we acknowledge that everyone is at a different place in their journey and that means everyone's comfort level with the content will vary. A general activation warning will be provided at the beginning of the event.
