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 200 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 well over 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, display an art exhibition, show a full cinema programme, exhibit an installation programme, curate a museum, include a blotter art auction, throw killer after parties and publish a book of selected academic works free for every delegate.


For delegate's convenience, we are pleased to also announce the Breaking Convention 2019 app on iOS and Android.  Download free and take us with you!
