The University of West London (London College of Music) are holding the Performing Recovery: Addiction Recovery Arts Network Launch, a first of it’s kind!
When: Thursday 8 September
Where: University of West London – Lawrence Hall
Both Our Space and Voodoo Monkeys are delighted to be part of the incredible line up for this event.
Our Space is a creative programme that works with adults with lived experience of homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse, reoffending, or feel socially isolated for other reasons. They provide drama opportunities for adults to help with building confidence and positive social networks.
They have community hubs that run confidence workshops, weekly creative sessions and bespoke training programmes to develop theatre skills.
Voodoo Monkeys is a Devon based Theatre Company, who are committed to working with marginalised communities. It is a new collaboration between writer and performer Jason Brownlee and director and engagement specialist Lee Hart.
This special event is being organised by the London College of Music’s Performing Arts Department. There is a fantastic schedule throughout the day, including performances, demonstrations, hands on workshops and film.
The event will also include industry partners, who will share examples of how their performance activity can enhance addiction recovery in community settings.
This Knowledge Exchange is the official launch of a recovery arts network. The event is free, with lunch provided. Come along and take part!
