This event requires registration; see further details below.

In conjunction with the exhibition Objects of Addiction: Opium, Empire, and the Chinese Art Trade (September 15, 2023–January 14, 2024), drama therapists Ana Bess Moyer Bell and Amy Lazier of the artist collective 2nd Act will lead a workshop designed to challenge participants’ ideas about addiction through a drama therapy model. By examining, embodying, and destigmatizing addiction and creating metaphorical objects of care, love, and support, participants will develop a shared understanding of addiction and how it affects daily life.

The hands-on session will take place in the Materials Lab on the Lower Level.
