The Compassion Project

The Compassion Project


Local Harm Reduction Teams throughout the East Kootenay are gathering material for The Compassion Project - an art show created for the purpose of sparking curiosity about values, beliefs and assumptions surrounding drug use in your community. The ultimate goal is to build compassion through increased awareness and understanding.

Community members who volunteer to participate in the project will have the opportunity to contribute a meaningful photo if desired, and will be asked: “How do you want to be understood?”, and “What is it like to be you?” The collection of stories, information and photos will come together to create an art exhibit that will be displayed in communities throughout the East Kootenay in the spring of 2018.
