"Addiction in Cambridge: Voices from the Field" PhotoVoice Exhibit
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for the first showing of our PhotoVoice exhibit, a collaboration between Cambridge Prevention Coalition and Mount Auburn Hospital, featuring the work of front-line workers from OPEN (Overdose Prevention and Education Network), CASPAR, and AIDS Action Committee's Needle Exchange Program.
Through photographs and narrative, these workers/activists answered the question, "What do I want Cambridge residents to know about substance abuse in Cambridge?" The result is a moving, artful, and thought-provoking display that tells a story of both heartbreak and hope.
Come in for refreshments at 4; remarks and introductions of the artists will be at 4:30. Please drop in at any time between 4-6 to view the Exhibit, meet the artists, and experience the unique perspective of workers and activists who support some of Cambridge's most vulnerable residents.
