As part of Science Gallery Atlanta’s HOOKED exhibition season programming, Emory Nursing post-doctoral fellow Dr. Sarah Febres-Cordero and visual artist Joseph Karg presented a virtual dialogue about their collaboration for the upcoming graphic novel, Staying Alive in Little Five. HOOKED is the first exhibit series for Science Galley Atlanta.  

The conversation took place at the 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points. For the Atlanta experience, they are expanding the conversation surrounding addiction. It highlighted Febres-Cordero’s research and encounters in the restaurant service industry related to substance use, in addition to Karg’s visual arts approach to bringing these experiences to life.  

The panel featured several guests, including a Little Five Points restauranter, an Emory University student, an Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition, and from the Little Five Points restaurant community and harm reduction and a Five Point resident. 

The HOOKED exhibition will officially open in early 2022. Click here to watch the full discussion
