Grateful Dead: Fares Thee Well with Advocacy
Earlier this month the original living members of the Grateful Dead celebrated 50 years of music with final performances in Chicago, entitled: Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to score a ticket, then like most, you streamed, or rather, “couch toured” the shows for your last stroll down “Shakedown Street.”
The swan song shows were epic, but especially heartening was seeing DPA partner MAPS on the ground honoring the Grateful Dead community and expanding awareness for psychedelics and reform through this amazing photo project advocating for research, education and harm reduction.
