Art and Addiction

Turas is a community addiction service working with people at all stages of addiction.

This project will use art as a creative medium to explore issues around addiction in the community.

Through a series of Art Therapy workshops the participants will explore the impact their addiction has had on their life.  

An exhibition of the art created will take place at the end of the project. 

The project will challenge the stigma around addiction that addiction is the fault of the person and will make them see that it is in normally as a result of a childhood trauma and painful emotions that people turn to addiction.

Details of the final performance piece will be posted to the Turas Facebook page. 

No venue has been selected for the exhibition as yet, date and location to follow. 

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
