This Mural was a collaboration between Rain City Housing, Vancouver, Cameras 4 Change and The Artolution . The piece was painted in a public housing center in the heart of the Heavy Narcotic-using area of Vancouver. The participants were primarily on Heroin, Crystal Meth, Crack and Methadone. In addition there was a large percentage of people who had serious psychological issues. The painting was an incredible outlet for people who had unbelievable experiences and stories to tell.
