POPPI DRUGS MUSEUM

Poppi is a new museum dedicated to retelling the story about drugs. Poppi organises pop-ups and (online) experiences and is gradually growing towards having its own venue.

Poppi is a social enterprise set on opening minds, breaking taboos and challenging assumptions.

 

Upcoming: Tales from the drug closet

Do you dare to talk about your experiences with drugs? The ‘Tales from the Drug Closet‘ project invites people to ‘come out’ about their drug use. Anonymous, or out in the open: you can decide. We tested our closet-prototype at the ecstacy store pop-up and will launch the app soon!

Ready to go global: the ecstacy shop

Did you visit our most recent pop-up – the ecstasy shop? The shop was hard to miss, with ample media-attention (including from The Guardian), the Dutch Health Minister and many other politicians visiting and lots of people attending our special public experiment in the midst of Utrecht. We are currently looking into copying the shop to other countries and into re-opening the shop in cyber space. Going global! 

Looking for investors

Poppi is ready to grow further, after four successful pop-up experiences, we are ready to look for a more permanent location. Are you interested to invest in our social enterprise? Please contact us via info@poppi.amsterdam
