Poppi: Drugs Museum Amsterdam reveals a unique photo archive to the general public. Photos from award-winning photographers draw you in to the Dutch drug scene in a raw and confronting way. The Amsterdam street scene from the 1990s meets today's drug user. What can they learn from each other?
For a full month, the ‘Vrijpaleis’ will be devoted to debates, film screenings and themed evenings on all things drugs. Live tours are provided by veterans who share their lived-experiences from the scene.
Immerse yourself in this dynamic expo. Take the digital smart tour and city game of the Red Light District and time travel to the 1980s/1990s. Meet Meis, who made her money by doing sex work to fund her heroin. The award-winning photo series has never been shown before, and can be seen for the first time during Dutch Drugs Stories.
Talk to people who used and listen to their testimonials. Be surprised by the holiday album of addiction doctor Andre Havas. He took his clients to Austria, resulting hilarious scenes. His photo album consisting of the original slides of the unique holiday will be exhibited at this expo.
Take a journey through our intense drug history and come to
the first Poppi expo: Dutch Drugs Stories.
The profits of the museum flow back to initiator Mainline Foundation. In doing so, we promote the health of people who use drugs through social projects at home and abroad.
Ultimately, we also employ people who (used to) use drugs, to give them a job opportunity.
In this way, Poppi not only contributes to more knowledge about drugs and policy, but also to more understanding and better care.
