    International Overdose Awareness Day, remembers those lives lost to overdose.

    Australia continues to suffer through a dramatic rise in overdose deaths, with five Australians dying each day from accidental overdose, many of these preventable. We come together each year to remind ourselves of the very real crisis we face, and consider how we can continue to do better, support one another and prevent this daily tragedy.

    This year, Nigel Brunsdon – visiting lecturer from Liverpool’s John Moores University, and harm reduction activist/photographer. Nigel has travelled extensively and documented harm reduction programs. Since running services himself for 20 years, he works mainly online now, and operates a number of internationally renowned websites, supporting the work of Harm Reduction.

    As part of his Australia tour, looking at Drug Consumption Spaces, he is visiting Geelong to discuss harm Reduction, photography, and much more.

    Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from one of the Worlds best….
