Johann Hari appearing in the ACT

Wednesday 19 September: A drug policy conversation with Johann Hari

The first event of the 2018 Canberra Drug Policy Series: A drug policy conversation with Johann Hari, will be presented on 19 September, 8pm at The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre.

Johann Hari is a TED Talks sensation with almost 10 million views, the author of two New York Times best-selling books, and for some, a controversial character. At the event, we will speak with Hari, about his experience of writing ‘Chasing the Scream: the First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’ and many of the people he met along the way.

We hope this event will:

  • Stimulate drug policy discussions
  • Encourage reflections on the impacts of drug policy including stigma
  • Promote positive, evidence-informed and earlier help-seeking, including awareness of and need for drug and alcohol treatment and support services
  • Encourage participants to engage in The Canberra Drug Policy Series event in November (more information to come).
  • Date: Wednesday 19 September 2018
    Time: 8pm
    Venue: The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre, Civic Square, London Circuit, Canberra City
    Cost: $23 + transaction fee,
