The Uniting Medically Supervised Injection Centre is “a compassionate and practical health service that seeks to connect with people who inject drugs and welcome them in a non-judgemental way.” Uniting MSIC has registered nurses and health education officers who supervise drug injecting that would otherwise happen elsewhere.
This extremely personal service provides a unique opportunity for a community to form, around people who share a common adversity.
Same Sky artists been busy over the last few weeks creating these mobiles that are being displayed in the Dome foyer over the xmas period for Same Sky and The Dome Heritage, with a nod to the old chandelier that used to hang in the Dome.
The purpose is to reflect on some of the Dome's previous uses. These include its origins as stables, it's tradition of performance, including circus shows, and as a roller skating rink.
Rumour has it that two suffragettes bought tickets into the roller skating as a ruse to get into the Dome, where they then hid in the organ, hoping to jump out and confront the visiting prime minister the next day. Unfortunately, one of them sneezed and gave themselves away. They then threatened to sue the Dome for the dustiness of the organ!
Same Sky worked with over 150 school children, from Carlton Hill Primary School, St John the Baptist Catholic School, Blatchington Mill Secondary, St Mark's C of E Primary and Goldstone Primary.
