Who we are

 

Indigo is a nurse lead event based harm reduction organization founded in May 2017 and based out of Edmonton, Alberta.

Indigo strives to create access to scientifically based harm reduction strategies and services to Alberta’s night life and festival communities.

Indigo acknowledges the risks generated in the night life industry or at large events and festivals. We inspire to help Albertan’s navigate those risks by creating safe environments that are free from judgement or stigma. Indigo provides community members with a took kit to make informed decisions regarding their health and well-being.#supportnotpunish

“Indigo holds a spaces at events that are staffed with trained professionals and peer supporters, who provide assistance to guests when they are feeling overwhelmed, experiencing a psychedelic emergency or need support for their emotional and mental health. Our team members provide a non judgmental and stigma free area for people to access support during their time at an event. Our safe space helps create a space for guests who are medically stable but may need additional support and time before heading back into the event or festival”
