“History is not there for you to like or dislike it. It is there for you to learn from it. And if it offends you, even better. Because then you are less likely to repeat it. It’s not yours to erase… it belongs to all of us.”
‘Missing Voices’ is a new video series we produced in partnership with Touchstones Nelson – Museum of Art and History that takes you into the lives of 15 individuals whose experiences and histories have yet to be represented at our regional museum. Watch it here: https://vimeo.com/touchstonesnelson

Feels fitting to end the ‘Beyond the Stigma of Drug Use’ video series with youth speaking up about their experiences around drug use. These five teens give us a real look at what it’s like these days growing up in the age of the opioid crisis.
By bearing witness it is our intention at Watershed Productions to help all of us all take a good hard look at the impacts of the opioid crisis and drug use, so we can reduce the shame and stigma around those that are struggling or making choices we don’t always understand.
Thanks to ANKORS, Nelson Star, Nelson Police, Nelson Fentanyl Task Force for being the forces that made this series happen. And, to the composer, Ben Euerby, for creating such brilliant music for the series.
