Singula Institute is proud to announce our first major social impact event of the year, Normalized: Conversations Beyond the Norm

Please join us, in collaboration with The Rodham Institute, The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, NAMI-NYC, and NAMI Maryland for an engaging evening watching the award-winning short film Normalized. The film will be screened for our live audience at the New York Times Building (620 8th Ave) in NYC, and will be followed by a live panel discussion around social perceptions of mental health and what it means to be ‘normal’ in America today. The film and panel discussion will also be livestreamed to all virtual participants here on the Gathr platform.

A cocktail reception will follow on-site for live attendees to mix and mingle with creatives, mental health innovators, community health leaders, allies, and more.

This event is free and open to the public, with donations gladly being accepted. Donors of $100 or more will have VIP access to pre-event cocktails and hors d'oeuvres starting at 5:30pm. 

If you are certain to join us for the live event, please select that ticket option so that we can count you in for our limited seating. All in-person attendees are required to have a government issued ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the venue. 

If you are unable to attend in-person, please select the virtual ticket option!

We hope you can join us, whether in person or online, for what will be a truly impactful evening!
