The Beginning of the End of the War on Drugs Party – SSDP Conference Launch


[iframe src=”″ width=”100%”]

Students for Sensible Drug Policy Australia are having their first ever conference and they’ve invited the Australian Psychedelic Society to help launch the event with a party!

Gather and celebrate the achievements of both the APS and SSDP. Let’s celebrate the psychedelic renaissance, the push towards drug law reform and a beginning to the end of the war on drugs.

We’re gathering some bass-witches to wobble your cellular mainframe, along with some other sensory joy. If you have something artistic you’d like to offer to help us pretty-up the night, get in touch!


Music from DJs:

Emily Roseman

Melbourne Documentary Screening: ‘Notes on Rave in Dublin’

Notes On Rave In Dublin is a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in Dublin. From the democratic romance of those early loved up dance floors, to how a cold social stratification and commercialisation crept back. Leaving it up to a network of outsider labels, pirates and ravers to establish an indigenous scene that they call their own. This is a story of how an underground works, mutates and survives.

The Australian Psychedelic Society invite you to join us for this film’s first screening in the Southern Hemisphere.

Notes on Rave in Dublin provides a timely analogy for the challenges we are locally experiencing, such as ‘Operation Safe Night’ and the Police Minister’s announcement that there are plans to ‘crackdown’ on doofs.

Read about the story behind the proposed crackdown, written by Dancewize’s Steph Tzanetis and published by AOD Media Watch.

On Saturday 17 of June, the Herald Sun published what they claim was an exclusive interview with Police Minister Lisa Neville. They “revealed” that ‘Police [were] to get new “stop and search” powers to stamp out drugs at dance festivals’. READ MORE…

We’ve arranged speakers from around Melbourne’s club scene to talk about their initiatives that support the creation of safe and inclusive spaces.

Speakers include:

Enpsychedelia‘s Nick Wallis will host as MC.

Come hang out with the community and watch this documentary about the wonders of the underground music scene.

$10 on the door

First in, first served; you’re welcome to BYO snacks and pillow (just in case we fill up).

Thank you to the Hope Street Arts Collective for hosting this event.
