The event focus will be arts of all sorts, a creative expression of social justice. We will have artists showcasing their artwork in many different mediums. The themes of the art will be around mental health, stigma, and substance use or misuse. There will be live artists as well, and a community engagement project. Along with the artists we will have service providers coming out to hand out resources, offer onsite naloxone training, open up discussions and educate those around harm reduction, and break down stigmas surrounding.
