Faces of Addiction
“Addicts aren’t all bad. Some of them started off as amazing people and just got lost.”
– TJ Ferris, meth addicted person
Our purpose is to create a fresh understanding of addiction and its victims through artwork and stories.
Create an art experience for at least 500,000 people which will enable them to see addicted people in a new way.
We have created a set of 50 life stories and gallery-quality environmental portraits of addicted persons. These will be experienced through the following media:
- Art gallery show opens in Cincinnati 1/16/2019 then travels to Columbus in June, 2019
- On-line e-book
- 23-minute Documentary movie for use in high school assemblies and rehab programs (funding needed for this)
- Print book (for release 1/16/2019)
- Project website (this one!)
- Associated activities, some involving portrait volunteers (addicts) TBD
- Program materials to assist with both rehab (recovery) and prevention programs, coming 2019 and later.
