As part of his ongoing SYNONYM project, Artist Phillip Andrew Lewis has invited guest groups to activate Headlands’ Project Space galleries during the run of his exhibition. SYNONYM explores the now-defunct anti-drug society known as Synanon and offshoot rehabilitation programs. Though wide-ranging in purpose and style, each of these participating local organizations identifies with some form of group healing practice.

Groups will activate the space with a range of activities every Sunday at 2PM (January 21 activation is at 4PM).
