Opportunities

Seeking Arts Approaches in Health practices

A research project is looking for UK examples of specific programmes that use arts approaches amongst people recovering from addictions. These might be based in hospitals or in community locations.

The project would also like to hear about any UK training programmes for healthcare staff that aim to help workers on how to use the arts with people recovering from addictions.

Any help greatly appreciated. If you can think of any examples please email your information to: Theo.stickley@nottingham.ac.uk
