From November 16 to 24th, Harm Reduction International are hosting an online festival designed to bring people across the world together, to discuss drugs and harm reduction.
The three key themes of the Constellations event will be SCIENCE, JUSTICE and PLEASURE. In addition to exploring innovative responses to HIV, hepatitis, overdose and OAT, key topics of CONSTELLATIONS will include racial justice, civil liberties, freedom and bodily autonomy, exploration of consciousness, and enjoyment.
For 31 years, HRI have hosted the Harm Reduction International Conference: the main global forum for the exchange of information at the intersection of human rights, public health and drug policy; a place for the international harm reduction community to gather.
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that we cannot safely gather in person for some time – but our need to gather with our community is as strong as ever. And so, HRI are organising Constellations: An Online Festival on Drugs and Harm Reduction.
Through panels, interviews, town halls, poetry readings, art and music, we will bring a new way for our community to gather and connect, to explore innovative solutions, to have urgent conversations and to redefine what harm reduction is and what it can be.
