“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 change the way we see addicted people from invisible objects or labels to actual individuals. This makes compassion possible.
Create an art experience for at least 500,000 people which will enable them to see addicted people in a new way.
We are creating a set of 40-50 life stories and gallery-quality environmental portraits of addicted persons. These will be experienced through the following media:
- Art gallery collection (80% complete). Gallery show opens in Cincinnati 1/16/2019 then travels
- On-line e-book
- 23-minute Documentary movie for use in high school assemblies and rehab programs (funding needed for this)
- Print book (publisher identified and funded)
- Project website (this one!)
- Associated activities, some involving portrait volunteers (addicts) TBD
