Description

18, 19 & 20 June, Brighton, 9.45am - 4pm


Delivered by Portraits of Recovery in collaboration with Brighton based Cascade Creative Recovery, this is a three day arts based training programme, not three occurences of the programme.

This series will bring together health workers as well as people in recovery. Health workers need to be in full or part-time employment. We expect participants in recovery to be volunteering or actively seeking voluntary work.

Space is limited. Booking is essential. After booking, a pre-training enrollment questionnaire will be sent to ensure the programme is right for you. As spaces are limited and to avoid any dissapointment complete and return the form immediatley.

We especially welcome interest from people identifying as LGBT+, South Asian, BAME, and disabled.

This programme is funded by ERASMUS funding from the EU and is part of a project called 'Art and Social Change.'

The Art & Social Change project wants to contribute to developing an innovative arts based training programme aimed at strengthening transversal competences of health staff working with people in recovery from substance use and including dual diagnosis.

Art & Social Change is establishing a series of interdisciplinary groups composed of:

  • artists
  • health professionals and
  • people in long term recovery

to explore the impact of the arts to deliver better quality services, with increased capacity to establish and create empathetic environments centred around collective relationship development that support equality of voice.

The project group intends to explore how art has been used successfully in addiction recovery and develop training to increase:

  • awareness of

  • engagement with, and

  • accessibility to such support.

We believe in embedding an action learning approach that can support health workers as well as improve outcomes for people in recovery, and in the process challenge misconceptions that contribute to stigmas.

We are particularly keen to amplify the messages emerging from the ‘Recoverist’ movement in the UK and develop training to inform and support health care professionals, building on successful pilot work in Italy.

Cascade Creative Recovery are a Brighton based charity that believes in the cathartic properties of art to heal and enable new growth - for people to recover from addiction and alcoholism there is a need to find a way to positively express themselves….That’s why they not only offer 1 to 1 support and mutual aid groups but also a writers group, a choir and the Cascade Drama Collective.
