Why is Poppi important?

So far, the Netherlands does not have a public institution which offers low-threshold education on drug policy and addiction. Misconceptions about drugs are widespread, but the story about drugs is not black and white.

It is Poppi’s purpose to engage our visitors, and inform them from different perspectives. We want people to form an opinion about drugs on the basis of knowledge and facts, and not just on emotion as is currently often the case. Poppi presents a story on health and criminality, a story on highs and lows.

Learn the true story about drugs!

Experimentation with immersive and visual art forms will allow us to deeply engage with people and trigger critical thought. As well as art, we combine scientific knowledge with new technologies such as virtual reality, digital gaming, testimonials and situation rooms. All of these elements, as well as a classical collection of photos, blend into a visual representation of the history of drugs.

TRIPLE IMPACT

The museum’s profits flow back into the Mainline foundation. Thus the profits contribute to the health of people who use drugs, through social projects in the Netherlands and abroad. Eventually, Poppi will also hire people with a background of addiction to offer them opportunities on the job market.
