REVEAL: with David Hoyle

We are seeking people from Greater Manchester’s LGBTQI community to participate in an arts based research and development project. Led by the legendary performance artist David Hoyle it will explore recovery from substance use-disorder.

What is it?

REVEAL is all about linking the arts with people in recovery from or affected by substance use-disorder. We want to tell a story, shine a light, blow away the myths and stand proud. We want to generate new possibilities for LGBTQI people in recovery by challenging and changing attitudes.

What’s in it for you?

Work with an artist to discover new ways of looking at and thinking about your recovery journey. Be part of our UNSEEN season that will celebrate the diversity of Greater Manchester’s recovery community by launching 3 new art works in September 2017.

What will happen?

You will work with David Hoyle & supporting artist Jackie Haynes to undertake creative and artistic led research that seeks to better understand the needs, requirements or barriers to recovery for LGBTQI people and their community. Hoyle is a vegan and in the 2 workshops artist and participants will creatively prepare a room for the hosting of a meal for sharing and conversation about lived experiences of addiction & recovery.

When & where?

You will need to be available for 2 workshop sessions being held on the Monday 16th & Tuesday 17th January. Each session will run from 12.00 - 3.00 pm.
