"Art, Stories That Honor Those Who Died By Drug Overdose"

This past June, Dr. Annie Brewster and visual artist Nancy Marks started offering workshops to individuals who have recently lost a loved one to opioid overdose. These workshops encourage participants to use art and storytelling to honor those who have died by drug overdose. 

After completing three workshops, Brewster and Marks will curate a community art exhibition and opening to share art and audio pieces with the public, and to bring together all participants. The hope is that this community event will increase public awareness and reduce the isolation and shame that can accompany the loss of a loved one to drug overdose.

The next workshop will be held in September. If you want to learn more, please contact Annie Brewster or Nancy Marks.

Recently, Dr. Annie Brewster shared more about the project on WBUR's CommonHealth.
