Other Ways to Care is a collective that emerged around the will to imagine care alternatives drawn out of activist and collective practices that confront, discuss and move beyond the neoliberal project, or in other words the increasing privatisation and individualisation of mental health care. We draw inspiration from minor psycho-political histories and from politically and socially situated practices of care which operate beyond the medical model and technological models of health and distress.
Other Ways to Care takes its name from an workshop organized by Susana Caló and Kevin Sarwar-Polley in the 2018 for the Anti-University Festival in London.
We are an open and evolving collective.
We consider OWTC to be composed by all of those who have collaborated or participated in our events or will do so in the future. OWTC is a group of many.
