Breaking the ice

A very special event, presented by Unharm in collaboration with The Institute of Many and supported by the Noffs Foundation.

Join Matt Noffs, author of Breaking the Ice, as we wade into the moral panic of methamphetamine, the risks of pushing drugs underground, and the growing possibility of a better future.

Hosted by Will Tregoning from Unharm, this is a public forum with plenty of opportunity for audience participation. Matt will be joined on the panel by Nic Holas (The Institute of Many) and drug educator Annie Bleeker.

For too long we’ve been frozen in fear when it comes to illegal drugs. History is repeating in NSW: moral panic combined with heavy-handed policing of drug use and nightlife. At the national level we’ve got shock ads and ‘dob in a dealer.’ It’s the same spiral of failure that we’ve seen so many times before.

Into this charged context, Matt Noffs has just dropped a ground-breaking book, Breaking the Ice.

To quote Richard Branson, the book casts aside hysteria and misinformation to take a fresh look at drug use, informed by years of experience on the frontlines, working with people who use drugs, their families and the medical community.

Breaking the Ice takes an honest look at the history of amphetamine production and use, the successes and the lies in government responses, and a new and hopeful vision for the future.

Thanks to the support of the Noffs Foundation, this is a free event. Please register to ensure entry as there is limited capacity.
