Our Projects

The short film Heroes Rising was produced by the Wega Arts Organization & Helios Recovery in 2016. The theme of the film is centered around a group of resilient kids, each drawing on their own inner superhero to fight the heroin/opioid epidemic. The movie is a tool that can bring kids and adults together to have a meaningful and constructive dialogue about substance abuse. The film was made by teenagers working alongside professional filmmakers in Weyauwega, Wisconsin.

Our goal is to show HEROES RISING at every middle school in Wisconsin.
