Walk With Me is an art-based community action project that seeks to uncover the human dimensions of the overdose crisis. In this project, a group of artist-researchers, front-line workers and people with lived and living experience have banded together in a sprit of solidarity, attempting to come to terms with the impact of the crisis on individuals and community groups through a practice of story sharing. The project aims to cultivate awareness leading to change.
This program involves a variety of events including Community Conversations, Artist Talks, Speakers, Healing Circles, Panel Discussions, Policy Discussions, Food-Sharing and – Story Walks. The artwork and audio created through the WALK WITH ME project can be accessed on a drop-in basis:
