Our dream is to provide harm reduction information and substance identification services for participants during the borderland. We will provide basic substance checking, as well as information on safer substance use. While we do not condone the use of substances at the borderland, especially illegal substances, we respect the right of borderlings to perform radical self expression, and to do what they want with their bodies. We hope to provide useful information to make for a safer burn. This project is inspired by the Trans European Drug information project, and many other drug checking services across the EU, such as Energy Control in Bacelona and the Loop in the UK, and is standard practice in many other european contries, but such services are absent in scandinavia.
At the borderland we will have a tent where people can come and get information on the safer use of substances, as well as getting their substances checked using Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) methods coupled with colorometirc assays. These tests are aimed at identifying primary components and possible harmful adulterants, but due to our simple equipment cannot completely identify the total composition or quantify the purity of all the elements. The results are thus a guide and not a 100% certain advice, the responsibility still relies with each individual borderling, but we hope to create a better informed base for people to make decisions. If significantly adulterated or dangerous substances are identified, we will alert the borderland community through posting signs around the borderland and at infopoints. We will also provide flyers giving information about different common substances, towards the goal of harm reduction. We will of course shine up our tent to make it look awesome in the quarry. We will aim to have the service open for a few hours each day of the borderland, depending on how many borderling helpers we can get. please write to us if you want to get involved! firstname.lastname@example.org
A few experienced borderlings looking to do substance checking at the borderland. Last year we had a mobile checking lab which was met with great success and received positively, so this year we step it up a notch with a set lab space and better analysis methods.

Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
