HBO’s Faces of Addiction

Family Dialogue Day Mural - July 19, 1997 - Atlanta, Georgia

Xavier Cortada facilitated Atlanta youth and families in the creation of an on-site community mural at the Sci-Trek Museum during the community’s Family Dialogue Day. The HBO On-site Mural Project allowed Atlanta residents to express their collective and individual concerns about substance abuse as part of a larger event aimed at broadening America’s understanding of the tremendous impact of alcohol, tobacco and illicit drug use. These community outreach activities were sponsored in tandem with the HBO airing of a Faces of Addiction, a three-part series on substance abuse to generate awareness and coalesce residents into action
