Be a part of ending overdose. How many origami cranes can you fold? #EndOverdose #OverdoseAware #IOAD2022 @OverdoseDay

This year City Mission is supporting Alcohol, tobacco and other drugs council (ATDC) in introducing the concept of “Forest of Cranes” in Tasmania to support the #EndOverdose Awareness campaign. We also have ATDC’s Lived Experience Advocates (LEA) supporting the event to increase awareness regarding overdose. Raising public awareness about overdose on the 31 August 2022 , City Mission will lead a working group along with the LEAs to coordinate the activities as decided by the group with the aim to deliver the key activities with high impact.

Bring along your folded cranes to this local community event and contribute to the Northern region’s artwork. The event will include:
-crane folding,
-placing cranes as part of an artwork,
-Lived Experience Advocate presentation,
-a minute’s silence to remember those we have lost to overdose.

If you haven’t folded a crane or unable to fold a crane, pre-folded cranes will be available on the day so everyone can be part of creating the art installation.

Doors open for crane folding and reflection at 1:00pm with the official part at 2:30pm.

Limited capacity so register your attendance now.

For further details, please contact Narelle at City Mission on 03 63353055.
