What is The Dope Experience?
The Dope Experience is a customizable health education workshop that was developed collaboratively with NWT residents in March 2019. The workshop uses creative inquiry (arts and new media) to engage young people in important conversations about substance use, mental wellness, and the importance of taking care of ourselves and each other.
