A museum that retells the story of drugs
Take a trip through the universe of drugs. Experience a multitude of perspectives with immersive art and stunning stories. Poppi goes beyond good and bad, high and low, right and wrong. We’re a new museum retelling the story about drugs. We’re set on opening minds, breaking taboos and challenging assumptions. We envision a world with honest and responsible education about drugs.
Drugs have the power to divide societies and people. They are evil, pleasurable, wonderful, illegal, criminal, sensational, destructive, spiritual and many other things, depending on who you ask. Poppi collects stories, facts and perspectives on drugs. The museum creates a safe space to learn and talk about drugs. Poppi empowers individuals and inspires drug policies that respect human dignity, health and public safety.
A social enterprise
Poppi is a Mainline initiative. Mainline is a foundation that promotes health and fulfills the human rights of people who use drugs. Without a primary focus on the reduction of drug use and with respect for the individual drug user’s freedom of choice and human potential. Future profits of the Poppi museum will benefit the work of Mainline foundation.
Poppi is established as a social entreprise. Read more about Poppi’s social mission.
After a successful crowdfunding in 2019, we gradually started building our museum. Throughout 2021 and 2022, we’re in nomad mode and will be organising expo’s at diverse locations. Our goal is to create a physical museum in Amsterdam and a digital one for the world. You can help us to open up and open minds. Find out how you can support us.
