VIDEO Culture Change: Art, Culture and the Addiction Recovery Agenda

See on Scoop.itDrugs, Society, Human Rights & Justice

Recovery is contested both as a concept and as a policy objective and the UK evidence base is currently limited. This seminar presents initial interpretations from a Wellcome Trust funded project called ADDICT. Developed by Portraits of Recovery, a socially engaged visual arts charity based in Manchester, ADDICT is an interdisciplinary research project exploring processes of recovery. It is delivered as a collaboration between artists, social and biomedical scientists, treatment agencies and people in recovery. The project uses socially engaged arts both as a form of engagement as well as a mode of inquiry into recovery.

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

An interesting eclectic approach to examine the issues involved in making the journey towards ‘recovery’ overcoming stigma and internalised and externalised discrimination
