WHAT: Lubbock County VOICES Community Coalition (VOICES), a STARCARE Specialty Health System (STARCARE) outreach program, encourages the community to submit items that represent a loved one who has suffered from or lost their life to an overdose. VOICES has partnered with a local collage artist who will utilize submitted photos, artwork, letters and newspaper articles to create an art piece that gives a voice to people who have experienced an overdose. Submissions will be accepted via email or in person at the drop-off location. All submissions must sign a release form or the submission will not be accepted.

The finished art piece will be unveiled at the annual Overdose Awareness event, organized by the VOICES Coalition in partnership with the Texas Tech University Association of Students About Service, Sept. 5, 2019 at the Texas Tech University Center for Collegiate Recovery. The collage will also be on display at the LHUCA Christine DeVitt Icehouse Gallery for the First Friday Art Trail Sept. 6.
