Join us for a virtual evening of performance and 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 "Everyone has a role to play", while continuing to cultivate a community of hope to those who are living with or affected by eating disorders. As a response to COVID-19, we hope that virtual VoicED 2022 brings community members together during a time of isolation, and empowers everyone involved to continue to dismantle the discrimination around eating disorders.

This years event will take place on Wix, an online platform that can livestream virtual performances! Click here for the link.

Please RSVP on EventBrite so our team can account for your attendance.

  • The event is pay-what-you-can, with donations accepted when reserving tickets. 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?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When do the virtual doors open?

Doors open at 6:30 pm for the night's attendees. The program will commence at 7:00 pm.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. Everyone is welcome!

I want to participate! How can I contribute to the program?

We want to hear your story in the most authentic medium to you! In the past, performances have included dance, musicians, singers, and spoken word. Works can include paintings, sculpture and photography. If you have another medium in mind, you can let us know at the link here.

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.

Will there be an intermission?

Yes, performers and audience members will be prompted by an online cue that signals a fifteen-minute intermission. Please DO NOT exit the virtual space during the intermission.

Is the event accessible to everyone?

While we have attempted to create an accessible and accommodating space, COVID-19 has limited our ability to hold an in-person event. This means that audience members and performers will need access to internet/data, a technological device (i.e. computer, phone), and potential webcam/microphone options.

Where can I access the recording of the show and/or my piece after it ends?

The recording will be sent out to performers 24-48 hours after the show. Audience members can access the recording of the show through our YouTube channel.

How do I interact with performers and other audience members?

After the show ends, folks are welcome to attend a Q&A and open mic portion on Zoom. Click here to access the link.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email nedic1@uhn.ca with "VoicED" in your subject line, and we would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Looking forward to seeing you there!
