Addiction in Long Beach; Jan-March 2016

The Addiction in Long Beach project kicked off the first year of CityHeART’s existence.

For six weeks, CityHeART led art workshops at Safe Refuge:           Safe Refuge Art Workshop Series, Spring 2016

CityHeARTists met with and interviewed Safe Refuge Clients in an effort to learn about recovery and addiction. The work of this project culminated in a rough cut of a docu-short about Addiction in Long Beach, which was screened in Downtown Long Beach.

Other events hosted to showcase the work created during this project included:

Finances for this project came entirely from fundraising events that included a launch party on New Year’s Eve at The Brass Lamp Booker and Lounge and a live art auction called Inspire Your Heart with Art.

Paige Pelonis and Izzy Matos auction off artwork donated to CityHeART for a fundraiser event called Inspire Your Heart with Art.
