A project to illuminate and honor the often-hidden struggles and triumphs of Lincoln County residents affected by substance use. Locally organized gatherings and events will humanize this complex issue, fostering positive change through greater understanding, increased empathy, and strengthened community bonds.

From August 24 to August 31 (International Overdose Awareness Day), events featuring art, music, remembrances, healing experiences and sharing of resource information will take place in every one of Lincoln County’s 19 towns.

Program details coming soon!

19 Towns, 19 Stories is a community-built initiative led by Studio B and commonspace’s Lincoln County Recovery Community Center.
