It has been powerfully moving to see the way people are coming together with the events scheduled every Wednesday and Saturday, as part of our program “Walk With Me / uncovering the human dimensions of the overdose crisis.” If you have yet to partake in one of the “Story Walks” at the gallery, please visit the schedule of events for more information and to reserve your space.
Even before Covid 19 emerged, many people were isolating from one another, and because of this, facing another kind of health crisis that affects all of us. This timely documentary invites us to reflect on the importance of relationships we have with those around us.
This multi-faceted project encompasses a range of events and activities each day the Gallery is open. The audio and interactive artwork created throughout the project can be visited at any time, and all are encouraged to join in on one of our daily Story Walks or supplementary activities such as food-sharing, panels, and discussions – as they provide a way for us to think and talk about the stories and insights being shared.
We welcome you to walk with us – as we journey through the intimate aspects of a crisis that has deeply impacted our community – in pursuit of meaningful change. The artwork and audio created through this project can be visited: September 30 – November 21 2020 (with the exception of closure on November 11th) Wednesdays + Saturdays / 10am – 4:30pm
COVID protocols will be followed.
