Sari Solden Announces Festival to Celebrate Women with ADHD

The publication of Sari’s book Women with Attention Deficit Disorder in 1995 was a pivotal moment in the evolution of our understanding of ADHD in general and women’s experiences in particular. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Women with Attention Deficit Disorderand in the spirit of uplifting and honoring women with ADHD and those who support them, Sari Solden will be hosting the Better Together Festival, an international “non-conference” festival like none other. ADDA is proud to be a honoree at the festival and announce a partnership with Sari to bring more resources to women with ADHD throughout the year.

Though ADDA is known for its life-changing conferences, we simply aren’t in a position, financially or organizationally, to host a conference this year, so we were elated to learn that Sari Solden is hosting the Better Together Festival. She’s taken all the best parts of an ADDA Conference (gathering in the hallways for discussions, talking late into the night about anything we’re passionate about, gathering with hundreds of people who all get you, oh, and you can’t forget the talent show!) and distilled them all into a festival! Throw out everything you expect from conferences.  This is a gathering, a celebration, a non-conference – and ADHD friendly.  That’s right – not a conference, but a festival! 

What makes this event so special?

The Better Together Festival will celebrate women with ADHD and give each attendee an opportunity to inspire others with their own stories and turning points. The festival will include motivational speakers, “hang out” sessions, live music, an art gallery, and the greatest talent show ever under the stars in scenic Ann Arbor, MI.  

“Forget everything you know about conferences,” said Sari, “this will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced. One of the most exciting things about the festival is that it’s all about the attendees. We’re asking for people to lend their voice to this event by sharing their art, poetry and turning point stories so we can truly celebrate their beautiful, creative minds.”

As soon as you register for the festival, you’ll be part of a community of women who really “get it” by being invited to join our private Facebook group. Here you can meet new friends, discuss travel arrangements, or learn about the best places to check out while you’re in Ann Arbor.  We’ll be chiming in often with suggestions! After the festival, this will be a great place to keep in touch with new friends and share photos.
