In Edmonton, the drug-poisoning crisis has brought substance use-related issues to the forefront and illuminated the reality that stigma and misconceptions around addiction are still common.
Addictions Don’t Discriminate is an interactive exhibit rooted in stories of lived experiences around addiction. The exhibit is designed to inspire understanding, empathy and action. Through the power of storytelling, this exhibit offers a glimpse into the complex world of addiction, uncovering the human experience that lies beneath the statistics and stigma. Six unique stories, showcased in connection to one another, push us to look beyond someone’s substance use and into the lived experience of each individual with empathy and compassion, to help us understand that Addictions Don’t Discriminate.
We created 6 Journey Maps in collaboration with the Addictions Don’t Discriminate Steering Committee. For more information and resources about addictions and the exhibit please visit the website addictionsdontdiscriminate.com
