The Dope Experience Tour

The traveling workshop will be visiting NWT in 2019 & 2020. The program is being delivered in most NWT communities by two territorial non-profit organizations – Western Arctic Moving Pictures (WAMP) and the NWT Association of Communities (NWTAC) – in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Services (HSS) and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).

This workshop series has been made possible through one-time funding from Health Canada and  GNWT

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.
