Sent on behalf of the Toward the Heart Program
I am emailing to tell you about an exciting project called “From the Art”. It is a proposed art exhibition to showcase artwork created by those affected by the ongoing overdose crisis here in BC.
We are looking for artwork of any type created by people affected by this situation. It may have been left behind by someone who has died due to an overdose-related event, it may have been created by friends and family members, or by those working closely in harm reduction.
With permission, we will be exhibiting these works publicly to give voice to those affected by this tragic and ever-pervasive situation. By doing so, we aspire to be able to reduce stigma, and perhaps gain insight into the lives of those affected in a way that only art can achieve.
For questions, submissions of art, requests to volunteer/support, or to donate, please contact me at the event email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks for your time, interest and support
