Horizons is a annual forum for learning about psychedelics. It is hosted by Judson Memorial Church in New York City. Its goal is to open a fresh dialogue about psychedelics and rethink their role in medicine, culture, history, spirituality and art.

Horizons was founded in 2007 by Kevin Balktick, a Brooklyn-based cultural event producer.

The venue, Judson Memorial Church, is a historically significant, landmarked location. Judson Memorial Church has a long history of promoting the arts, free speech and progressive politics. It also has a deep commitment to social justice. It is actively involved in projects that promote immigrants’ rights, fair trade, gay rights, pacificism, drug abuse harm reduction, healthcare reform and aid to the homeless. Notable artists whose works has been exhibited at Judson include Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Yoko Ono and Twyla Tharp.
