2017 is a year the New Day Campaign in partnership with others explore matters related to addiction in a variety of ways. We begin by taking a look at the current opioid crisis: what is it, why are we in it, and what can be done and is being done? Widening our lenses beyond our national borders, what is happening elsewhere around the world and worth considering within our community? And taking a look at a historic past, how has substance use—with an emphasis on opioids—been viewed and managed in bygone cultures and eras? Bring your stories, questions, and ideas for a primer on all-things-opioid.

Every now and again, an artist deeply touches you... the experience transcending mere interest, pleasure, or delight. Such has been our experience of @phyliciaghee , whose performances mine a deeply spiritual place of profound connection to something so much larger than our every day... to a place of wholeness, presence, and healing. Our #ndcartistoftheweek is Phylicia Ghee, who has been a fixture as an artist for the New Day Campaign since we began in 2015. Our Resident Healing Artist in 2015, Phylicia has presented several extraordinarily powerful performances over the past several years, and will be a part of our activities again in 2018 in a yet-to-be-determined healing arts workshop as part of our programming for “Heroin & Healing,” an exhibition we are presenting with @kentcountyarts . You can see more of Phylicia at her website at #artheals #healingandart #itsanewday #ndcitsanewday
