Recovery is real! – A photovoice exhibition

Exhibition launch event: Wednesday 16th January 6pm – 8pm
In 2015, the University of Edinburgh undertook a photovoice project together with Serenity Café to explore the role of environment in recovery. The project was presented in a photo exhibition, which was a great success and was shown in the Scottish Parliament. Through the photos, people in recovery were given a voice to share their experiences. In 2017, a second project was initiated, with a focus on the role of identity in long-term recovery. For eight months, a number of people in recovery took photos that represented their lives and experiences in becoming who they are today.
The project is led by Dr Sarah Rhynas, lecturer in Nursing Studies at University of Edinburgh and the project is funded by Alcohol Research UK.
