The 5th International Conference on Psychedelic Consciousness

16-18 August 2019, London, United Kingdom


Breaking Convention is a biennial multidisciplinary conference on psychedelic consciousness, featuring more than 150 presenters from around the world.

Europe's largest conference on psychedelic consciousness, Breaking Convention debuted at the University of Kent in 2011 to an audience of 500 delegates.  Now approaching its eighth year, and at its new home at the University of Greenwich, it has developed into a truly multi-faceted festival selling nearly a thousand tickets in forty countries and offering the latest ground-breaking research and insights across human and social sciences, law, politics, art, history and philosophy.

Spanning three full days, we also hold numerous workshops, present awards, hold an art exhibition, show a full cinema programme, curate a museum and publish a book of selected academic works free for every delegate.



We are indebted to our sponsors for their support. We would like to draw your attention to our partners, all of them relevant and important to the growing global psychedelics renaissance.  If you would like to see the sponsor packages on offer at the 2019 conference, please email us.
