October 10: Opening of heART space

heART space - Community Conversations and Compassion-building around Overdose, is a collaborative project involving artists, current and former street-involved youth, front-line workers and others affected by the current overdose crisis and the structural forces that have contributed to it. We have created an art show to honour those we know who have died of overdose and provide a space for deep and respectful dialogue and creative expression around drug use in our community. heART space is an invitation by youth/young people who intimately know about drugs, death and grief to the community to come together. Please join us October 2017 at 821 Fort in downtown Victoria, on the traditional territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.

Funding for this project is provided by CARBC's Ministry of Safety and Solicitor General Dialogues on Opioid Use and supported by the Victoria Cool Aid Society.
