Hammered: After Party is a magazine that was created by young artists and others who are interested in preventing alcohol-related harms.
What’s Inside? Creative works which reveal the thoughts and opinions of young people about alcohol; interviews with young artists and people affected by alcohol (e.g., a young man living with an alcohol addiction, a young woman living with an FASD, a mental health and addictions worker); and articles on how alcohol works, youth engagement, and FASD.
Hammered: After Party was developed as part of the Youth Action for Prevention, a youth-focused FASD prevention program. The articles and art in this magazine can be used to start conversations about the role of alcohol in the lives of young people and society. From these conversations, youth and communities can find ways to work together to address alcohol-related harms, support informed dialogue on alcohol use, and create positive change in these areas.
