Recovery and the arts conference

3rd September 2019
Everyman Theatre, Liverpool

Registration information

To kick-start National Recovery Month 2019, Liverpool John Moores University’s conference profiles the work of the UK arts-based recovery community.

The conference aims to provide a platform for community arts-based projects to display latest work it hopes to enable those in recovery from drugs and alcohol, to share their experiences of art-based recovery; and for academics to present and discuss their research.

It also aims to provide an opportunity for delegates to identify gaps and needs in the arts-based recovery community and develop a plan for action.
